Sports|Keshi Is To Blame Okocha Faults Keshi For Iran Result

Ex-Eagles Captain Austin Okocha points fingers towards Keshi for the result against Iran: he challenges the coach's tactics and technical formation.

If Okocha was the coach last night, would Nigeria have won?
More reactions are trailing the dismal performance of the country's national team, the Super Eagles last night in the game against Iran, some have even suggested that the coach is not the best choice for Nigeria at the World.

Former skipper of the team, Austin 'Jay Jay' Okocha has lambasted the tactics of the 'big boss.'

Okocha who was on the broadcast of the game with the rest of the other Supersport analysts said: "He was not patient and I expected that he'll leave his creative players on the pitch to create chances for the team but that was not to be.''

The poor showing of the team unarguably began from the wrong choices in the selection of players; though the coach does not kick the ball during play, neither does he get the chance to talk to the players while playing, the tactical approach and technical formation are the coach's.

It was a disappointing play from the Nigerian team and the Africa Cup Of Nations record goal scorer further said: "In as much as I want to be positive regarding the Eagles this result (against Iran) doesn't give me anything to think about because we were poor.''

"Keshi didn't do enough with this team because he was not patient and I hold him for this. You could see that the introduction of Osaze Odemwingie brought sparkle into the team but it was not just enough,'' Okocha concluded.

The result of Monday Night's game may have been to the dismay of Nigeria, but the Iranians have earned the record for the first time in their history of participating in the World Cup, a 'no defeat' opener.

Nigeria has never won any World Cup game since France 1998 and they can only hope to change that against Bosnia come june 21st.
