Super Eagles captain speaks on Cameroon
game and Nigeria’s 2018 FIFA World Cup
chances

Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi is confident
that Nigeria will qualify for the 2018 FIFA
World Cup.

Nigeria are currently four points clear at
the top of Group B in qualifiers and Mikel
believes the Super Eagles will be closer to
qualification if they win their next game at
home against Cameroon.

“We are in a very good position in our
group. We have two wins from two games,
and in our last game we beat Algeria at
home,” Mikel told the official website of
FIFA.

“We have a very good young team and the
players play good football. If we can win
our next match (at home to Cameroon on
31 August) it will edge us closer to
qualification. I think we can go through.”
Nigeria will face host Cameroon in Uyo on
Friday, September 1 before a return leg in
Yaoundé on Monday, August 4.
“As everyone knows, they are a very good
team,” Mikel said.

“They are strong and they play with
confidence. We must get ourselves well
prepared for this game and try our best to
get on top against them. It won’t be easy
but these are important matches. If we win
both, we will be almost there.”

Mikel has not played for the Super Eagles
since the 3-1 home win over Algeria in
November 2016, a game which he scored
in.

The 30-year-old midfielder in April had a
surgery in London for a lingering
abdominal strain which sidelined him for
more than three months.
Mikel is back training and has promised to
do all he can to be fit for the game against
Cameroon.

“I had maintained good form until this
injury, so it was a shame. But this is part of
the game and now I am focusing on
recovery and on coming back stronger.

I
will do whatever I can to get fit to play for
Teda and my national team,” Mikel said.
“This Nigeria team look up to me for
advice. My team-mates miss me and they
need me. As the captain, I want to fulfil
my role and help them with my
experience.”

Mikel has played in just one FIFA World
Cup tournament, Brazil 2014, missing the
2010 edition in South Africa due to injury.
