World Cup: He calls Okocha the greatest player of all time

Former Nigerian international Austin “Jay Jay Okocha” has named Argentina legend Diego Maradoni as the best player of all time.

Okocha said this during his pre-match analysis of the World Cup second round of 16 match between Argentina and Australia.

He was responding to statistics showing that Lionel Messi has yet to score in the knockout rounds of the competition.

Okocha was asked if Messi’s failure to achieve this feat would not help him overtake Maradona.

But he replied: “For me, Maradona is the greatest player in history.

Messi can try to match his record.

“But Messi is Messi. His influence in the national team has been enormous.

“Tonight all hopes rest on his shoulder.”
