Nasarawa United make history as Nigerian football continues to progress

Nasarawa United's 2-1 win over Kano Pillars last Sunday was so seismic it reverberated around the world.

Not many news items about Nigerian football, certainly not ones concerning the domestic football league, make such a splash, so this was one of massive significance.

Here's why: Kano Pillars were playing at home. Kano Pillars had not lost at home since 2003. That's 12 years or, if you please, 202 games. I dare anyone to show me a club anywhere else in the world with such a record!

Notable omissions include Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel and winger Victor...

Remembering a Nigeria legend -- Samuel Okwaraji

For many Nigeria fans, the players of today lack the spirit and patriotism of Samuel Okwaraji.
For many Nigeria fans, the players of today lack the spirit and patriotism of Samuel Okwaraji.

He only played eight times for Nigeria and scored a grand total of one goal, but Samuel Okwaraji did enough during that brief amount of time to write himself into Nigerian football folklore.

The fact that he collapsed on the pitch and then died a few minutes later may have played its part in his legacy, but it was more about the man and his selfless patriotism, the determination to give everything for his country.

Armed with a Masters degree in law, and studying for his doctorate, Okwaraji...
