The Man 3

Mikel Obi don retire o from the national team. John Obi Mikel will not be available when Nigeria face Seychelles in their second 2019 African Cup of Nations qualification clash at the Stade Linite in Victoria on September 8.

Mikel’s absence was unconnected to the injury he suffered earlier this month with his Chinese club Tianjin Teda that he is yet to fully recover from, hence his withdrawal. It is the second time on the bounce that the 31-year-old will be absent due to an injury from the 2019 Afcon qualifiers, having missed a 2-0 opening home loss to South Africa in June 2017.
