The former Super Eagles midfielder thinks Stephen Keshi's men still have the quality to amend their fading World Cup campaign with a victory in their next match

Former Nigeria midfielder Austin Okocha has thrown his weight behind the Super Eagles to bounce back in style against Bosnia-Herzegovina in their second Group F match at the ongoing 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.

The Eagles made a false start in the competition when they were held to a 0-0 draw on Monday night by Iran.

Okocha believes the African champions have all it takes to excel at the tournament with their never-say-die spirit by bouncing back against the European side on June 21.

"The only positive thing l could get out of this game was that we will always get better in their subsequent matches as the competition progresses," the former Bolton skipper said on SuperSport.

"Well, in as much we try to be positive about our team. The team's performance didn’t give me much to talk about. We were poor against Iran.

"But, this might be good omen for us doing better in our remaining games," he concluded.

Nigeria match against Safet Susic's side holds on Saturday at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiabá.
