Even with the stats, you are still asking questions? don't you know the meaning of performance? in the world of coaching, result speaks.

Mudashiru lawal is 86 caps and not 90

Kanu already had 86 caps before the world cup.

Including friendly games before the world cup

And the world cup games already put kanu ahead of muda lawal.

I took this question to some top football players who are all ex eagles player and same answers I got.

The answer is there on NFF wiki page on the web which is constantly updated.

The fact still remains that some people don't use the knowledge and power of the web to

Search answers but they rather argue without facts instead.

I don't know lately if Kanu played any game for Nigeria and if had done that it means he is the highest cap.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigerian_national_football_team

National team‡

1993 Nigeria U17 6 (5)

1996 Nigeria U23 6 (3)

1994–2010 Nigeria 86 (13)

Competitor for Nigeria

Men's Football

Gold 1996 Atlanta Team Competition

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only and correct as of 15:45, 1 October 2010 (UTC).

† Appearances (Goals).

‡ National team caps and goals correct as of 16:39, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

This means that he played at least 1more game at the world cup and that clearly made him the most capped player over Late Mudashiru Lawal.

Kanu Nwankwo deserves it.

Nwankwo Kanu is same as Mudashiru "Muda" Lawal ------86 caps and if he play one more time he will be the highest cap in Nigerian football history.
