Former Super Eagles skipper Austin Okocha has blamed coach Stephen Keshi for his team’s drab draw against Iran on Monday.
The Brazil 2014 World Cup experienced its first draw as Iran held Group F rivals Nigeria in Curitiba a result which angers the former Bolton Wanderers attacking midfielder.
Okocha who serves as pundit for SuperSport faulted the former Togo and Mali boss’ decision to take off a creative player in Victor Moses for Shola Ameobi seven minutes into the second half.
“He was not patient and I expected that he’d leave his creative players on the pitch to create chances for the team but that was not to be,” Okocha said.
“In as much as I want to be positive regarding the Eagles this result doesn’t give me anything to think about because we were poor.
“Keshi didn’t do enough with this team because he was not patient and I hold him responsible for this. You could see that the introduction of Osaze Odemwingie brought a spark into the team but it was not just enough.”
