Captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria John Obi Mikel will arrive Nigeria on Sunday ahead of their October 7th World Cupar 2018 Qualifiers clash against Zambia in Uyo.
Mikel was voted the Man of The Match (MOTM) for his Chinese side Tianjin Teda in their 3-1 win over Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng, which helped them move out of the basement of the League table in the Chinese Super League.
Although he didn’t get on the score sheet, he was very lively and set up the third goal which helped his team kill off the tie after Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng have pulled a goal back.
His performance in the game lead to many fans of the club attributing their poor season to his absence after injury ruled him out for three months, few games into the start of the Chinese season.
The Chinese league won’t have weekend games, this is so done to allow players called up by their national team to honour the call, and travel on time due to the miles involve in travelling from China.
