AFCON 2019 : Mikel Doubtful for Nigeria’s Round of 16 Tie


Captain of the Super Eagles John Obi Mikel is a doubt for Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 encounter.

The 32-year-old reportedly suffered a knee injury during the 2-0 loss to Madagascar at the Alexandria Stadium on Sunday.

It remains to be seen how long the Former Chelsea man will be out of action, but he is expected to miss Nigeria’s next AFCON duty.

The Former Lyn Oslo playmaker recently signed a deal with Turkish side Trabzonspor, and will team up with compatriots Ogenyi Onazi and Anthony Nwaekeme after joining on a two-year contract.

Three time African Champions Nigeria could face Ghana or Benin Republic in the round of 16 of the AFCON after losing the top spot in group B to Madagascar.
