Burundi Was Too Hard To Crack - Mikel Obi by dachilino: 6:24am On Jun 23, 2019
Mikel Obi who spoke after the Super Eagles game against Burundi in the ongoing AFCON competition, stated that they were too hard to crack. According to the Super Eagles captain, the original plan was to go for early victory but the Burundian side held their ground making it difficult for the Eagles to  have a smooth sail. Mikel Obi who stated that the Burundi national team was quite hard to crack, however expressed delight that the Eagles ultimately earned the three points at stake.

“It was indeed a tough match. We played a compact team that was not easy to break into" he said.

The Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr who agreed with his Captain that it was a tough match, remained optimistic that the team will play better as the tournament progresses. He however blamed the struggle on setbacks in the camp, no thanks to virus that attacked the players within the week making it impossible for many of them to function to full capacity.

Am not surprised that mikel is saying this,his inclusion in afcon is a disaster to this young players,it do more harm and damages than good, the worst captain in the history of super eagle,for a foreign commentor to say, "mikel is not leading his team mates,a captain that played badly". The coach should always introduce him when the game has already been won,mikel never improve his game since 2005,a year before kanu retired,he's still playing beautiful football,the same as okocha and other previous captain, but this one is worst as a captain,his boring game has weaken his team mates and got them tired quickly, his presence on field reduces those guys performances ,only for his assistant(musa) to comes in and motivate the boys.

Good job Guys.

It's only the first match, the 3 points really important now.

Put in more effort in the next match.

We are solidly behind you.

But at last we cracked them. Well deserved though

Madagascar are not a write off oo.. They drew with Guinea yesterday.. Imagine a debutant

And Guinea have never conceded nor lose their opening games on AFCON.

Pls guys stop blaming Mike Coz I don't see any crime he has committed, rather put the blame on the coach whose formation almost cost us the game.... playing players out of their normal position is very dangerous, if u must play 352 formation then every players must be in their rightful place, but I would have preferred he go for 433, with musa and igaloh in the starting line and then u will see what Mikel is capable of doing.... and Las Las he should Pls change that keeper that likes playing with ball like he's playing for Barcelona

Oga shattap. U no play anything.
Introduction of Ahmad Musa and Iwobi dropping to Midfield changed the game.
Thank God he has admitted this will be his last tournament.

Re: Burundi Was Too Hard To Crack - Mikel Obi by ImpregnaTor(m): 7:39am On Jun 23, 2019
says the one who's using captain chance to get a slot in the first team;

if i were the coach, this guy will so warm bench until warming the bench becomes his fulltime job; he as useless as the one in ASO Rock.

he was playing out of position....Mikel acts well when he is fielded as a defensive midfielder not directly behind the strikers....
