Back then, he is always a controversial selection in every of our National lineup.

On hindsight, he was an ever present player in the Super Eagles. Happy birthday, sir

My Dad always accorded respect to this man. He wasn't decorated but damn he was committed. He deserves my respect, any Nigerian footballer that made my Dad happy while we watched Nigerian teams play totally deserve my respect. Happy birthday sir!

Mr. Garba Lawal "Chindo"
Position( DL, DR, DC, DM, MC, AFRL)

The Only Football player in History that FIFA accorded full respect to while on the field!

FIFA Called Him Mr. Garba Lawal


The Only Position Garba Lawal didn't play for Nigeria was the Goal keeper position. He played every other position..

Highly Committed to the National team

Happy Birthday Mr. Garba Lawal

Lol, guy... Your ajasa too much´┐Ż...

Memories, those early 90, early 2000 eagles are fun to watch...

I just hope and believe the present crop of players will start giving us 100% commitment.

I can't forget his goal against Andoni Zubuzarreta of Spain in the world cup of 1998, his feeble shot beat the Spanish goalie which was parried into the net giving Nigeria the equalizer before Oliseh blaster from the center field win the match for Nigeria 3-2. I didn't like his playing style then but he has a goal to his name in the Mundial.
After the goal I was like 'Aja raun raun lon pa ikun' 'its a useless dog that can hunt down a squirrel' I didn't reckon with Lawal then and for him to have scored against the agile Zubuzarreta the proverb comes to my mind

He was always very hard working in his playing days, disciplined to the call, always the first to report to camp ahead of time, and he was nick names Philip Trousere number one, an hard working defensive mid-filder too
