Okocha Reacts To World Cup Qualifying Draw


Former Super Eagles midfielder Austin Jay Jay Okocha has reacted to the Super Eagles’ Group C which also consists of South Africa, Rwanda, Benin, Zimbabwe and Lesotho.

The Atlas Lions of Morocco surprisingly reached the semi-final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar beating countries like Spain and Portugal along the way.

“Morocco showed that an African country could win the World Cup! We must follow the example of Morocco,” he said.

Okocha appeared in the 3 FIFA World Cups (1994, 1998 and 2002) before retiring from the game.
