Don’t cry for Nigeria – Okocha


Ex-international Austin Okocha is still ruing the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.

“Those that qualified for the finals have earned it. Concerning Nigeria, it is useless to lament.



“Nigeria was favored to be among the 16 qualifiers, but this is not the case. We must try to understand what went wrong and correct errors, so that they do not re-occure, “ Austin Okocha said.

The former PSG and Fenerbahce star has tipped Yaya Toure of Manchester City to clinch the African Footballer of the Year when the winner is announced next month.

“Musa has his own qualities, but in my opinion, Yaya Toure is the best African player, he is on course to win the title logically,” said Okocha.
