THIS IS NAIJA: A NIGERIAN FOOTBALL STORY

The Super Eagles are on a mission to bring Naija to the world. Naija? An unbridled, optimistic, confident approach to football–and to life–that sets Nigeria apart. Wherever you travel in this diverse country of over 500 different ethnic groups, it is football that serves as a universal language, the connective tissue, that unifies this land, and drives the spirit, belief and the energy of Nigeria today.

From the streets, to the clubs, to the markets, to the pitch, from the energy and chaos of Lagos to the wooded savannas of Abeokuta, the football not only the rhythm, but pulse of Nigerian culture. Featuring conversations with Segun Odegbami, a star of the 1980 Nigerian Africa Cup team, and current Super Eagle players like Odion Ighalo and Wilfred Ndidi, it taps into the unbreakable confidence of a team, and a country, who are ready rule the football world for years to come.

Film director Andrew Dosunmu is a Nigerian photographer and filmmaker, known for his work in documentaries, music videos and feature films. Notably in 2006 he created the documentary “The African Game,” a compelling on-the-ground depiction of Africa’s passion for football and the emerging players from a continent in love with the game. He is also a long-time fan of the Super Eagles.
