    Troost-Ekong, a centerback has two goals for far for the Super Eagles in his yet to be concluded third tournament.

    The legendary striker, Kanu Nwankwo, in nine tournaments for the Super Eagles (three World Cups and six AFCONs), had ZERO goals.

    Facts on ground is, Kanu’s highlights are mostly about the Atlanta 1996 Brazil comeback, and his EPL comeback treble of goals against Chelsea in 1999.

    The boys have been sifted.

    Let the men now duel for who is to be called the greatest.
