There's an ongoing debate on the legendary status of two of Nigeria's finest midfielders on Twitter, as fans compare the two Super Eagles legends.

The playing career and achievements of two illustrious Nigerians who played and thrived for European clubs and the national team in different eras is under review by football loving Nigerians.

For many, there's no basis for comparing the incredibly talented Okocha to a Mikel Obi who failed to reach his full potential.

While for the other camp, the argument is that, although Mikel's career stalled at some point, his achievements make him the greater of the two men.

There's also a third group who would rather split honours between both men than pitch their tent in one corner. For this group, they acknowledge Okocha as the better player but rate Mikel higher in terms of greatness.
