Mikel Obi: Egypt Is Where I Started & Finished My National Career by Rejoice9jaBlog: 12:50pm On Jul 18
Nigerian Football Legend "Mikel Obi", made it known to the world via his official Instagram account that he has retired from the Nigeria Football federation.

He wrote:
Egypt is a country where I’ve started and have finished my National career. In 2006 I played my first official championship for my Country. 2019 African Cup of Nations marks my last championship for National Team with Super Eagles.

My national career started in 2003 under 17 World Cup and I’m grateful for the national team for placing me on the world arena and giving me an opportunity to show my skill and have an incredible National and International career.
At the age of 32 it’s time for me to retire from the National team and let the youth take over, who’ve done an amazing job securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019.

Thank you to all my Nigerian supporters and to my Country for all the trust, support and love you’ve shown me over the past 15 years.

Mikel out!

Truth is there's no future for you in the national team. Mourinho destroyed your career at Chelsea when he turned you from a formidable attacking midfield wizkid to a boring backpasser.

Did you even watch their last match, some of you with your cheap android phones will just be posting nonsense online.

Where in football is it a crime to do a back pass? Enter field now I bet you can't play 45mins.

He's a legend because he has achieved what very few people were able to achieve the football.
Your post reeks of hatred.
