Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has picked Nigeria and Argentina to qualify from Group D of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Okocha stated this while sharing his views on SuperSport.
“For the first time, we are going into such a tournament without bonus issues, without financial issues, hopefully with this, there will be a sustained team spirit that will get Eagles through the knockout stages.
“I know Argentina can and why I believe Nigeria can also is that things are changing, for a very long time, we have not had a very consistent team but now the new manager has gotten young and experienced players to play together as a team and I see things are changing.
“Yes, our expectations are high which is expected when we have such array of talents, but the issues have been off the pitch, we must give kudos to the Nigeria Football Federation and the players’ managers for doing a good job,” the former Bolton Wanderers and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder noted.
The Super Eagles on Thursday moved to the city of Kaliningrad where their first match will be played.
