thumbnail Hello,

The former Nigeria midfielder thinks the Super Eagles perform better under pressure.

Former Nigeria international Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has told Brila FM that the Super Eagles can spring a surprise at the World Cup where they have been placed in a group with Argentina, Greece and South Korea.

The former Bolton man, who has been touted to make a return to rejuvenate the Eagles' midfield, told the sports radio station that the Argentinians might be up for a surprise when they face Nigeria on June 12 in South Africa.

"Anything can happen. So, we know that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

“I still believe that is the good thing about Nigerian players. We can always spring up so many surprises,” Okocha concluded.
