Golden Eaglets Star Tijani Samson learning from Mikel


Golden Eaglets captain Samson says he’s learning a lot from Super Eagles Captain John Mikel Obi.


Tijani was named the Man of the Match after the Golden Eaglets 1-0 over their Angolan at ongoing CAF U-17 African Cup of Nations in Tanzania over Angola on Wednesday afternoon.

Speaking after the game with Angolan side, Tijani acknowledged that he’s leading by example and is inspired by the leadership skills of Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel.

”Yes, I am leading by example. I get inspiration from my senior national team player in Nigeria, John Obi Mikel. I look up to him, how he leads the team,” Tijani stated.

The Golden Eaglets are a point away from booking a semi-final and World Cup ticket after two victories in the competition, Tijani said God is behind every victory.

”I am very happy, I thank God for everything, God made it possible for us,” Tijani added.
