Official – Super Eagles Captain Mikel Obi Pulls Out Of Poland Friendly Tie


Captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria John Obi Mikel has joined the duo of Oghenekaro Etebo and Junior Ajayi in pulling out of the Super Eagles friendly game against Poland.


Etebo pulled out of the friendly game due to fitness issues, while Ajayi couldn’t secure an entry visa into Poland. Mikel’s withdrawal from the game is due to his inability to sort out his work permit issues.

According to Super Eagles team administrator Dayo Enebi Achor, the Tianjin Teda of China midfielder took his visa for renewal but the renewal didn’t go as planned and due to the delays he will miss the game against Poland, but he is expected to play in the game against Serbia in England.

“We all had been hoping that the renewal would come in good time for him to fly to Poland. As it is now, it is not likely that he would make the trip”, Enebi told
