NIGERIA VS IRAN: Okocha Blames Keshi For Iran Draw

Following Nigeria's match against Iran last night which resulted in the goalless draw, the Super Eagles Captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has blamed coach, Stephen Keshi for the team's approach.
Speaking as an analyst on Supersport after the match, Okocha said: "Keshi should be held responsible for the way the team played. Before the match he said African teams are tactically not disciplined and he did not bring anything new to the table.

"His changes were poor. He took out Moses and brought in Ameobi. I think that was a wrong change.

"We saw how Osaze came in and showed a lot of creativity. That is the kind of thing we expected. Iran match would have been our strongest point but we missed it."


However, Coach Stephen Keshi on the other hand thinks his boys did well as he said that the Super Eagles did their best to defeat Iran.

Speaking moments after the match, Keshi said that: "I wanted victory in this match, in fact, I want to win all the matches but this is football, that even when you dominate a game, you still don't get the result".
