Captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Chinese side Tianjin Teda John Obi Mikel will tomorrow lead his team as they go in search of their first win after three pre season games.

Mikel who was handed the captain armband by coach of the team Jaime Pacheco in their second pre season game against German side St. Pauli which they lost 2-6, captained the team as they feel 0-1 to Romanian outfit Dinamo Bucuresti in their last friendly game.

His first game for the team after his transfer from Chelsea also ended in defeat as they were beating by Borussia Monchengladbach II 1-2.

However he will be looking to lead them to a change in their fortunes when they take on Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev in another pre season game tomorrow, as preparations for the start of the Chinese League hots up.

He will also be hoping to get among the goals like he did in their loss to St. Pauli due to his role in the team as the attacking midfielder just behind the top striker of the Chinese team.
