Clemen Westerhof remains the best Super eagles Coach Nigeria has ever seen.
It was his exploits with the national team that led to one of the biggest transformations in the history of the Super Eagles.
Westerhof, on three occasions, came home with all three Silver wares in his first three years, winning Bronze in 1990, Silver in 1992 and Gold in 1994.
He qualified Nigeria and also led the team to a round of 16 finish at the 1994 FIFA world Cup in USA. And that was the country’s first ever appearance in the Competition.
All the top Nigerian legends you know today came into spotlight during the days of Westerhof.
Talk about the likes of Jay Jay Okocha, Nwankwo Kanu, Rashidi Yekini, Sunday Oliseh, Daniel Amokachi, etc., they were all part of that Golden Generation.
And it was in Westerhof’s time that Nigeria was ranked 5th best team in the world by FIFA and 1st in Africa.
