Former Nigeria international, Daniel Amokachi has blamed the Super Eagles’ problems on ‘wrong coaches and the wrong players.’
Amokachi’s comment comes after Nigeria’s 4-0 defeat to Portugal in an international friendly played in Lisbon last week.
Nigeria lost two other friendlies and failed to qualify for World Cup.
Amokachi has now opined that the Super Eagles are struggling because of the wrong choice of players and coaches.
“When you look at the Portugal game, that tells you that we don’t even deserve to be there [World Cup],” Amokachi said
“There are one, two, or three different angles from which you have to look at it, bringing in the right coach, bringing in the right players, and getting the right environment to play at.
“We always bring the wrong coaches to handle a country like Nigeria; we always bring the wrong players.”
In the three international friendlies in September and November, Nigeria were beaten 2-1 by Algeria before a 2-0 loss to Costa Rica followed, although only players from the Nigerian Professional Football League faced the South American country. They then lost to Portugal 2-0.
