The former Nigeria captain says he is not bothered by the recent head-to-head results and thinks the game would be decided by the players.

“I think it’s always easier to sit on the outside and act as if you have the best solution. But I’ve played the game at the highest level and I can tell you my opinion,” Okocha told Goal.

“You can come up with whatever tactics you want as a coach but if you don’t have the tools to execute you will struggle, and if you don’t have willing players that are ready to commit to the cause then you will struggle.

“I think it’s all about the players’ mindset on the day and the team that wants it more.”
