Hi, do you need any assistance?

Legendary Nigerian forward Daniel Amokachi says he will pick former teammate Austin Okocha in his midfield ahead of John Mikel Obi in a tough match involving the Super Eagles.

Amokachi played alongside Okocha, fondly called Jay Jay, in one of the best Super Eagles side ever produced in the 90s.

They both featured in the Eagles squad that won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia.

That same year, they were in the squad to the World Cup held in the United States with Amokachi scoring two goals.

At the 1998 World Cup in France, they featured for the Eagles.

Also, they were part of the U-23 Eagles that became the first African team to win gold in the football event at the Olympics during the games at Atlanta 1996.

And answering a question on who he will go for, Amokachi, speaking on his programme the “Bull’s Pit” on Brila FM, said: ” I remember against Italy he made history with the most dribbles in a World Cup match,” Amokachi said.

“When Jay Jay is in his element the opponent will not even see the ball. The through passes he will give is incredible. That’s the Jay Jay you want to pick.

“So left for me I will pick Jay Jay any time any day.”

Mikel never played with Amokachi in the Eagles but was in the same squad with Okocha at the 2006 AFCON where they finished third.
