“For me, what is most important is to get the ticket. It doesn’t matter how, even if we don’t play beautiful football. “What is important is getting the ticket to the World Cup in Qatar.
“It is the result that matters,” Okocha, who captained Nigeria at the 2002 World Cup finals in Korea/Japan, added.
