The 2018 FIFA World Cup is fast approaching, and the signs are that the Super Eagles will be one of the 32 teams at the tournament in Russia. Save for the hosts and Brazil, no other country is guaranteed a place just yet at next year’s event, but some countries’ chances look promising.

In Africa, the race resumes in August, with the Super Eagles having back-to-back encounters with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, knowing that decent results in both games will all but seal their place in Russia.

Meanwhile, the FIFA U17 and U20 World Cups take place this year, with Nigeria missing from both tournaments, which is quite a rarity, as the country have regularly participated at both levels, the competitions offering the birthing ground for some of Nigeria’s best players.

Today, we take a look at FIVE Nigerian players with the most appearances at FIFA tournaments. This is inclusive of the U17 and U20 World Cups, the Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the FIFA World Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup and the FIFA Confederations Cup.
