"With this kind of team, even from the goalkeeper, you will find it difficult seeing the ball," the former defender tells Kickoff.com.

"If you were the opponent, you would have serious, serious difficulties touching the ball. This team would open you up so easily.

"I don't think there would be any team that would leave the field and say after that they were not tired.

"I don't think you would also have a situation where the opposing defenders would not accuse each other of failing to mark.

"Possessing brains at the back and having difficulty in tracking attackers, it will be difficult for any team to score against a team like this."
