Russia 2018!!! Good News For The Nigerian Super Eagles, As Mikel Obi Declares That He Is Ready To Make The Ultimate Sacrifice

Super Eagles Captain, Mikel Obi, is willing to make a sacrifice, by playing a different role, just to ensure the team advances into the later stages of the Russia 2018 World Cup, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Eagles, are currently bottom of their group, after losing to Croatia, and have the Iceland game, on Friday, to keep hopes alive.

Mikel, playing in an advanced midfield role, was one of the Super Eagles’ worst performers, on Saturday, with many fans including the Legendary Jay Jay Okocha, calling for him to be subsequently dropped, or given a withdrawn role.

When asked about playing in defensive midfield, on Wednesday, Mikel said: “If I have to sacrifice for this team to progress, I will.

“If I have to sacrifice a position, go play wherever, I will do that for this team to win games”, he added.

Recall, that Mikel played as a Defensive Midfielder for most of his successful 11-year stay at Chelsea Football Club, but has often been deployed further up-field, for the national team.

Mikel’s former Coach at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, had also advised that the Nigeria captain should be a ‘number 6’, a Defensive Midfielder.
