Underrate Super Eagles at your Peril – Mikel warns Argentina


Mikel Obi has disclosed that Super Eagles group D opponent, Argentina should be wary of them or get punished.

The Super Eagles midfielder and captain who currently plays his football with Chinese club Tianjin TEDA told that Nigeria shouldn’t be seen as pushovers as they are ready to crush any team in order to make it out of Group D.

“I am not really concerned with the kind of attention being given to Argentina at the World Cup,” Mikel told

“One thing is certain, if Argentina decides to underrate us, then we are ready to raise the level of our football so as to punish them decisively.

“Nowadays names don’t play football again; it’s an 11-man affair on the field of play. So the current crop of Super Eagles players is eagerly waiting to face them,” the former Chelsea midfielder said.
