INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE In the early ’90s, Nigeria was a nation mired in political unrest, economic struggle and social upheaval. In the midst of these difficult circumstances, the Nigerian mens’ national (football/soccer) team, soared to unprecedented heights. Known fittingly as the Super Eagles, the team captured the hearts of a nation on their magical gold-medal run during the 1996 Olympics. – Brandon Harrison
