Mikel Obi returns to Super Eagles for 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

Mikel Obi has returned to Super Eagles for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Mikel’s last game for Nigeria was against Argentina at the 2018 Fifa World Cup and he is yet to feature for the country since their group stage exit in Russia.

The 32-year-old has missed the Super Eagles’ last seven games, including five qualifying matches for the continental showpiece in Egypt.

In March, Rohr disclosed that the Middlesbrough midfielder missed out on selection due to a knee injury.

Following a meeting with the German tactician, Mikel disclosed his readiness for his fourth appearance in Africa’s foremost football competition.

“I met with coach Rohr and we discussed his plans for the team in the forthcoming tournament. All I can say is that I am delighted and happy because I am coming to the Nations Cup” Mikel told Aoifootball.
