The whole idea of this top 10 most handsome Nigerian footballers is not to pitch anyone against the other.
When you watch these guys play on TV, there’s a way they beautify your screen because they are good looking – unlike some ugly players (I didn’t mention names o).
Funny enough, most of the Super Eagles players in this article are the dual citizens who switched allegiance to play for Nigeria.
However, a couple of Naija born players did make the list.
Let’s take a look at them all.
