Former Nigerian forward, Daniel Amokachi has attributed Nigeria’s 4-1 loss to Denmark at the 1998 World Cup to former Super Eagles coach, Bora Milutinović’s inability to play Rashidi Yekini and Austine Okocha together.
Amokachi made this known in an interview with Brila Fm on Wednesday, where he insisted that their presence could have changed the complexion of the game.
He pointed out that Okocha would have created more goal-scoring assists for Yekini to score for the Super Eagles.
‘If Yekini started that game with Jay-Jay we might not have lost.
‘Okocha played his absolute best game for us that day, he would have dropped at least six assists for Yekini, Instead Bora brought him on late in the second half.’
‘As far as I’m concerned he could have changed the course of our team in that competition if the Coach had used him more in France.’
