Previous Super Eagles captain, Austin Okocha has stood up in desire for a restoration for Nigeria at the progressing World Cup in Russia.
Okocha faulted the Eagles’ absence of imagination and entry of play as explanations behind their 2-0 loss to Croatia, which he said implies Rohr must assume liability for the annihilation.
The previous Eintracht Frankfurt, Fenerbahce, PSG, Bolton Wanderers and Hull City dazzler then asked the group to gain from their missteps and put everything appropriate, in front of their second gathering amusement against Iceland on Friday
“It was a decent first half but maturity was the edge the Croatian team had over the Nigerian team.”
“We didn’t get the best out of Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses because the manager was trying to accommodate Mikel Obi in the team.”
“We didn’t have a creative player today; Mikel has been a good servant to the national team. His best position is playing in front of the defense.”
“We saw what he did playing for Chelsea where he had a glorious career. The most creative player in that team is Alex Iwobi but he was played on the flanks.”
“He can play on the flanks at Arsenal because they had better players in that role like Mesut Ozil. The reason why we lost was that we played our best players out of their positions.”
“Sadly, we have lost today but we can’t give up now, I believe he can work on the lapses he saw here and come back stronger against Iceland.”
