The midfielder has overcome a knee problem and could be set to give Gernot Rohr a major boost as the Super Eagles prepare for Stuart Baxter’s men



Nigeria captain Obi Mikel has handed coach Gernot Rohr a selection boost ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal against South Africa.

The Super Eagles midfielder took part in light training during the team’s recovery session on Sunday morning, seven days after he limped out of Nigeria’s 2-0 defeat to Madagascar.

With this development, Rohr would be positive about his chances of playing against Bafana Bafana for a place in Afcon semifinal on Wednesday.

He had given a positive update to the press after his men silenced Cameroon in Saturday’s Round of 16 encounter in Alexandria.

“Mikel is trying to run already, so we will see if he could be fit one time for [South Africa] clash,” he said.


Shehu Abdullahi, meanwhile, could be considered for selection after recovering from a hamstring injury suffered against Burundi.

“We hope that Shehu [Abdullahi] can come back, he was on the bench [against Cameroon],” Rohr continued.

“Right now, I’m very happy that we have competition for positions in the team, it us choices to make incase other players are tired or injured.”

Lol, Mikel is better off in the dressing room or on the bench encouraging the boys. A restraining order should be put in place so he does not get more than 5 meters to the pitch. cheesy

Meanwhile, please patronise me guys.

When I look at Mikel of under 17 years back atimes,I don't seem to be happy compared to the current Mikel I am seeing now.
Although he won a lot of trophies with Chelsea, yet am not convinced he fulfilled his talent as a footballer
Although he so good in back pass

Nigerian fans and their traditional unstable and wobbly emotions... grin
It is a little bit too uncritical to judge Mikel because of his recent bad days with the SE... One thing you can not take away from him is His capacity to deliver in the Big games...
This is one of the keys behind several successes of the Super Eagles.. He can deliver when it matters.

Mikel is surplus to requirement, Rohr should bench him or lose the match against South Africa. We have enough competent DMs like Etebo and Ndidi. Even Ndidi is more offensive than Mikel.

When there is an opening to switch wings and stretch the opponents defense or put an offensive through pass to Chukwueze, Mikel will simply pass back to Omeruo, waste our time and kill the attacking tempo when we badly need a goal.


If he starts, Nigeria will lose.
