Former Super Eagles star tips Netherlands for glory

Austin Okocha has been impressed with Netherlands at the World Cup in Qatar and believes they have a chance to go far in the tournament.

The Oranje beat hosts, Qatar 2-0 to finish as Group A winner with seven points, one more than African Champions, Senegal.

“It’s well deserved, it’s not a surprise because we said it they will want to finish top of the group and the man in form (Cody Gakpo) has been the one that scored the goal,” He said.

The former Super Eagles midfielder added that, the Dutch have not really played well in the tournament, but hailed their determination to win every game.

“They’ve not really played well, dominated games, but they’ve gone out of this group unbeaten and they have something to build on.

“They finish top. Who knows the route that they will take now. They might face weaker opponents and that might give them the chance to go very far in this competition.”

Netherlands will face the Group B runner-up, United States, in the second round of the tournament.
