John Mikel Obi Named Super Eagles Captain – Super Eagles’ midfielder John Obi Mikel has been named the team’s new captain ahead of the upcoming qualifiers.
Mikel’s new position was announced by his predecessor Ahmed Musa, who was appointed by former coach Sunday Oliseh to replace retired goalie Vincent Enyeama.
“I need to report now that from today, John Obi Mikel is our new captain,” CSKA Moscow star Musa said in a press conference ahead of the Eagles’ AFCON 2017 qualifier against Egypt. Interim manager Samson Siasia and Mikel were present at the conference.
Mikel will certainly be hoping that the Eagles can do better than his club side Chelsea are currently doing, who are currently knocked out of all competitions.
