I know what you would have loved to see is a list of Super Eagles players and their state of origin, unfortunately, I won’t be able to provide you with where they all come from.
Here’s an idea: from their names, you could figure out where they are from. For instance, a name like Rashidi Yekini shows you he’s from Yoruba extraction. Got it?!
The Super Eagles of Nigeria are three-times Africa Cup of Nations winners, has qualified for six FIFA World Cups, missed out in 2006, ranked 5th in the FIFA rankings of 1994, blah blah blah blah blah…
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before.
Well that’s not why we are here.
Putting together a list of Super Eagles players – and I mean all of them – that’s what prompted me to write this post.
So no distractions about some Super Eagles feat or history.
Say what now?!
It’s not possible for me to have a full list of all former and current Super Eagles players?
Tell you what, I have a Super Eagles list that bears even their dates of birth – if you give me a moment.
But I hope you know that it is the Nigeria national football team that was nicknamed Super Eagles?
You knew that, right?
Let’s move on.
Wait, you realise I’m not talking of merely a Super Eagles world cup list or Super Eagles AFCON list of some particular year?
That would be limiting the scope of this article which is to show a list of Super Eagles players from all generation.
If you’d also like to see all Super Eagles coaches till date, I made a fantastically comprehensive article on that. If you think I’m bragging, you take a look.
Now let’s get to our Super Eagles team list. I have arranged them in the order of Player, Position and Date of Birth.
Names Of Super Eagles Players

Now your turn
Do you know any name that is not on this Super Eagles list? If that player has been capped for any international game or ever been on any Super Eagles call up list, you can state that person in the comment box.
But as far as I’m concerned, my list of Super Eagles players is a comprehensive one as of the publish date of this post.
