In a great country like Nigeria, numerous talents abound. And in football particularly, this nation is never in short supply of gifted individuals. However, while some Nigerian footballers have grown from the ranks to stardom, adorning the great colours of the Super Eagles – the green and white – others have chosen to adorn the colours of other countries.
But whether this happens by dual nationalities, lack of opportunities to impress on the home front or outright decision to represent other countries, Nigeria can boast of a wealthy array of football talents in the diaspora.
While the likes of David Alaba, Emmanuel Adebayor, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Angelo Ogbonna and Nedum Onuoha may be already known players that have been added to the “what if” list of the Nigerian football history, there are a host of others who ply their trade in countries other than the country of their descent.
Below are the names of players who could have adorned the green-white-green of the national team but never did

Born on the 5th December 1993, Barkley is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Chelsea FC and the England national team. He previously played for Everton FC and has played on loan for Sheffield

Nigerian Footballers Abroad
Saheed Adebayo Akinfenwa (born 10th May 1982),
also known as Adebayo Akinfenwa, has spent his
entire career in the lower leagues of English football
but has still achieved global fame, thanks to a
computer game.
According to the makers of the top-selling football
franchise, FIFA, Akinfenwa is the strongest player in
the world, a title he is proud to accept.
The 32-year-old forward has never been considered a
natural footballer, numerous rugby clubs and
American universities have asked him to switch
sports because of his size and power. But Akinfenwa
has only ever been interested in football.
Standing at just 5ft 11in, Akinfenwa weighs more
than 16 stone. He shares the same football history
with Shola Ameobi but the latter got the opportunity,
while at the age of 32, Akinfenwa has been
overlooked by Nigeria coaches.

Stefano Okaka Chuka (born 9th August 1989) currently plays as a striker for Serie A club
Sampdoria.

the Nigeria Football Federation about the possibility of
him switching allegiance to his parents’ country and
play with the Nigeria national football team – the
Super Eagles which were already at the 2014 FIFA
World Cup.
However, things took a new twist as Okaka was
included in the Italy squad for their friendly against
Albania on 18th November 2014 by manager Antonio
Conte.
He made his debut as a substitute and scored the
winning goal at Sampdoria’s ground. But according to
the FIFA rule, he can still represent Nigeria if he wants to.

Innocent Emeghara

Nigerian Footballers Abroad
Innocent Nkasiobi Emeghara (born 27th May 1989) is
a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a striker
for the San Jose Earthquakes of the Major League
Soccer.
He was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to
Switzerland at the age of 13.
He began his senior career with FC Zürich’s reserves
aged only 17, going on to represent FC Winterthur
and Grasshopper Club Zürich; on 20th August 2011,
whilst at the service of the latter, he scored a hat-
trick in a 4–3 away win against Servette FC, which
meant he led the Super League’s scoring charts at five in only six games.

Oguchi Onyewu

Nigerian Footballers Abroad
Oguchialu Chijioke “Oguchi” Onyewu (born 13th May
1982) is an American soccer player who plays as a
centre-back for Charlton Athletic F.C.
He has played for clubs in France, Belgium, England,
Italy, the Netherlands, and Portugal.
Onyewu’s parents moved to the United States from
Nigeria to study in Washington, D.C. They are Igbo
people from Nigeria. Onyewu has two brothers, Uche
and Nonye, and two sisters, Chi-Chi and Ogechi.
At 6ft 4in (1.93 m) and 210 lb (95 kg), Onyewu is the
second-tallest outfield player in U.S. team history
(after Omar Gonzalez).
I can’t help but think that if all these talents were
assembled and blended with our current squad and
with a capable coach at the helm of affairs (not
forgetting to mention a functional “Glass House”),
Nigeria will be poised to challenge for honours on the World stage.
