It is suspected that the Super Eagles have a chance to win the prize in Egypt, said by Obi Mikel, winning captain of Nigeria. He said that he is very eager to win the trophy. He will be the head of players in Egypt who are appearing for the first time in the competition. Obi Mikel had won his first medal six years ago in South Africa after completing 3rd in 2006 and 2019. Now again he is impatient to win AFCON 2019.
We come here to win the competition and his team is well prepared for the tournament, stated Obi Mikel. He further said that no doubt it will be a tough competition but we are a strong team.
He is impressed by the young eagles and admired by them. The young eagles have built themselves up after being defeated in last year’s World Cup in Russia. The experienced midfielder, who was not the part of this qualifying competition, said that the team is full of young players, which is a plus point for them to win.
He said that the team has very brilliant players like Samuel, Chukwuez, and Paul which are trained very well. We are here to compete as we want to do such incredible things.
the ex-Chelsea player made his first appearance in Nigeria football squad in 2015 against Libya. This tournament, with the national team, is expected to be last of Obi.
However, he says that he is not sure that it’s his last tournament but one has to leave at some point and he wants to leave it with his good performance.
