Former Super Eagles captain, Jay Jay Okocha, has said the team with the right mindset will emerge victorious, when Nigeria take on South Africa in the quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

Nigeria are yet to defeat South Africa in their last five outings, which ended in four draws and one defeat against Bafana Bafana.

Okocha is however not bothered by the recent head-to-head results and thinks the game will be decided by the players’ performances on match day.

“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.

“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 than you will struggle.

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