Super Eagles vs Serbia: Mikel To Miss Pre- World Cup Friendly

John Obi Mikel has shown his frustration at missing the Super Eagles vs Serbia pre-world cup friendly today in London.

The Super Eagles captain was also absent for the Poland game as he was held back in China trying to sort out his work permit.

Gernot Rohr affirmed after the Poland game that Mikel was not missed and that he has invited Porto’s Mikel Agu to replace John Obi Mikel for the game against Serbia.

Writing on Twitter on Monday afternoon, the Super Eagles skipper stated: ”Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control I will not be on the field for our game v Serbia.

”I am sad, and frustrated, but giving my full support to the team for another WIN! #SoarSuperEagles”.


John Obi Mikel last played for the Super Eagles in their 4-2 victory over Argentina in an international friendly in Krasnodar last November.
