Amokachi backs Nigeria for World Cup impact
Nigeria legend and Super Eagles assistant manager Daniel Amokachi has identified his troops as “dark horses” for the World Cup.
Stephen Keshi’s men are continental champions and the Big Boss has cultivated a fine group tied together by a strong sense of unity.
Amokachi commented on some of the problems that have plagued World Cup-bound Nigeria sides in the past, but stated that Keshi was leading a new regime: That ego that has always been in the team has been eradicated,” he said, speaking to the BBC, “Everybody has love for one another and that’s showing on the pitch. The unity in the team has been the key to our success in the last year.”
Super Eagles fans are further encouraged by the draw, which has been perceived as being favourable. Argentina may be ominous opposition, but Iran and Bosnia are certainly beatable.
