As the Super Eagles play Argentina today in Brazil, an ex-international Paul Okoku believes that the African champions have the capacity to reach the round of 16 stage.

“These players have what it takes to rise up to the challenge to prove they belong in the midst of the very best on the world stage ”, said. Okoku.okoku-eagle

While describing goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama as the best goalie in the world, and Emmanuel Emenike as a megatron, Okoku urged the Eagles to brace up  for today’s tough task against Argentina.

“I will advice the players to have a short memory of the victory against Bosnia and get ready for an uphill task against Argentina. It is a no brainer that Argentina would be Super Eagles’ toughest opponent in this group, but they are beatable.

“I would like to see our players muster the courage and the usual Nigerian fighting spirit in order to have a chance to win against Argentina”, added Okoku.
