Here are the five Super Eagles that look older than their ages.
1. Francis Uzoho
At age of 19, Francis Uzoho have made three senior appearances for the national team including the latest win against Poland last weekend.
But, the Real Club Deportivo Fabril number one looks like he is in 30’s because of his matured looks.
2. Joel Obi
The Torino midfielder made a comeback into the national team since Samson Siasia left as coach of Super Eagles following his impressive display in the Serie A recently.
Although the 26-year-old has been plagued with injury during his spell with Inter, but the former Parma man looked way beyond his present age when he made played in the Poland friendly.
3. Stephen Eze
After having a remarkable CHAN competition in Morocco, Stephen Eze caught the eyes of Bulgarian side Lokomotive Pludiv.
The 24-year-old earned a call up for the Super Eagles friendlies with Poland and Serbia, but taking a second look at the lanky defender, questions can be raised about his age.
4. Ahmed Musa
Musa has gotten back to his best after making a return to CSKA Moscow following torrid times with Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Musa, 25, has played at the U-20, U-23 for Nigeria but with the look on his face one would think he is a veteran who just have a few years to call it quits with football.
5. Moses Simon
Moses Simon has been one Nigeria’s exciting players on the flank with his commanding display all through the qualifiers enroute to the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The 22-year-old got married two years ago when he was 20 which is very unusual for the young lad.
