Diego Maradone of Argentina is the best player to ever play the game, according to former Nigerian international Austin “Jay Jay” Okocha.
This was spoken by Okocha in his pre-game analysis for the Argentina vs. Australia World Cup Round of 16 matchups.
He was commenting on the statistic that Lionel Messi had not scored in the competition’s knockout stages.
Okocha was questioned about if Messi’s failure to accomplish the accomplishment would enable him to surpass Maradona.
However, he retorted, “Maradona is the greatest player in history in my opinion.
Messi can attempt to equal his record.
Messi is Messi, though. And he has had a huge impact on the national team.
“Tonight, everything rests on his shoulders.”
