Nigeria had won their maiden African crown on home soil in 1980 and had gone ahead to lose in the final matches of the 1984, 1988 and 1990 editions.

Nigeria defeated stubborn Ivory Coast 4-2 on penalties after normal time ended 2-2 in the semi-finals in Tunisia.

This news medium had reported that the 1994 set of the Super Eagles was honoured last week at the 2018 edition of the NFF Awards.

Speaking during the event, one of the players on the team, Sunday Oliseh, noted that “Nigeria has given us everything we have. We have given everything we have to Nigeria.

“If we are not recognised, Nigeria will not produce another set. If we are not thanked, Nigeria will not produce another set, because what will it take to name one street in every state the Super Eagles of 94 Street?”
