John Obi Mikel set to return for Nigeria at Africa Cup of Nations

John Obi Mikel has confirmed he is available to return to Nigeria’s Super Eagles for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, according to a team official.

The former Chelsea star last played for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and was not involved in the qualifying for this year’s Nations Cup.

“Mikel has met with coach (Gernot) Rohr in England, and he has confirmed he will feature at the Nations Cup in Egypt,” said a top team official.

Experts said his experience and leadership would be invaluable to a squad that includes many players making their debut in this competition, after Nigeria missed out on the last two editions.

The tournament in Egypt is widely seen as the last hurrah for the player in international football.
