Mikel Obi “Sad and Frustrated” For Missing Pre-World Cup Friendlies

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has expressed his frustration for not playing a part in Nigeria’s pre-World Cup international friendlies against Poland and Serbia.

Mikel who plays for Chinese Club Tianjin TEDA, couldn’t join up with the Nigerian squad because of work permit issues.

“Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be on the field for our game against Serbia tomorrow. I am sad, and frustrated, but giving my full support to the team for another WIN!” Mikel posted on his Twitter page.

However, Mikel reiterated his support for the team saying he’s “excited to see how far we can go as a team this year. Tonight is another step on that journey. I’m with you tonight.”

Nigeria defeated Poland last Friday in Warsaw courtesy of Victor Moses’ 61st-minute penalty and are set to battle Serbia tonight at the Hive Stadium in London.
