Blame Bora For Nigeria’s Loss To Denmark In 1998 World Cup -Amokachi

Former Nigerian forward, Daniel Amokachi has blamed former Super Eagles Bora Milutinović for the team’s failure to beat Denmark in the Round of 16 of the 1998 World Cup.

Amokachi made this startling revelation during an interview with Brila Fm on Wednesday.

He said that Nigeria could have won the game against Denmark if the coach had used Rashidi Yekini and Austine Okocha together.

Recall that the Super Eagles lost the game 4-1 after 90 minutes.

He said: ‘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.’
