NIGERIA SQUAD 2002 JAPANSOUTH KOREA FIFA WORLD CUP

The Nigeria Squad at the 2002 FIFA World Cup are the worst Super Eagles team ever – or at least to date.

They crashed out of the tournament in the group stage; lost two games, drew one and managed to score only one goal throughout the Mundial.

What could possibly be worse than that?!

Adegboye Onigbinde was the Super Eagles coach who oversaw that disastrous outing.

Meanwhile, Brazil won the 2002 Korea/Japan FIFA World Cup, beating Germany 2-0 in the final in the ninety-minute regular time.

The third place went to Turkey, while the fourth place was taken by Korea Republic.
