The captain of the senior national team of Nigeria John Obi Mikel showed his class in his first training session with the Super Eagles ahead of their game against Algeria.
Nigeria will take on Algeria in a dead rubber World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie, and Mikel who will most likely start as captain on Friday started his build up with the team this evening.
As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, the captain arrived the camp of the team this morning after their morning session, and only had his first training in their second session of the day.
He was very lively, fit and commanding in the middle when the players engaged themselves in a practice game which brought the session to an end.
His range of passes and ball holding abilities left his markers chasing shadows, and from all indications he looks likely to pair Wilfred Ndidi and Ogehenekaro Etebo in the midfield against Algeria on Friday.
