Okocha Gives Reason Why Eagles Fell Before Croatia



Austin Jayjay Okocha

Jay Jay Okocha, Former Super Eagles midfield maestro, has attributed the disappointing 2-0 lose of Super Eagles to the Croatian National team to lack of creativity in the team.

While featuring on SuperSport commentary Program disclosed that the players could not give their best because they were playing in the wrong wing.

“We didn’t have a creative midfielder today. Mikel Obi has been a great servant but I think his best position is sitting in front of the back four.

“We saw him play as a defensive midfielder in Chelsea and he did so well,” he said.

The veteran player also added that Alex Iwobi was the most creative midfielder in the national team at the moment but playing him as a winger “was taking his strength from him”.

“Iwobi can play from the wings in Arsenal because there is a Mesut Ozil who brings creativity.

“I think the only reason why we lost this game is because our players played in the wrong positions and we didn’t get the best out of them,” he added.
