Nigeria vs Serbia: Mikel sends message to Super Eagles
Super Eagles’ captain, John Mikel Obi, has sent an emotional message to the team ahead of today’s international friendly encounter against Serbia.
The former Chelsea player is also hoping for a successful campaign for the team ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Mikel won’t be available for the Tuesday’s encounter due to work permit issues.
The Super Eagles have already defeated Poland 1-0 at the Municipal Stadium, Wroclaw in Mikel’s absence.
And ahead of tonight’s encounter at the Hive, Barnet FC Stadium, the Tiajin Teda of China midfielder has backed the team to have another successful outing.
He tweeted, “I’m excited to see how far we can go as a team this year. Tonight is another step on that journey. I’m with you tonight.”
The friendly game will kick-off at 8.pm Nigerian time.
