Russia 2018 World Cup: Mikel assures of better performance if team qualified
Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi has declared that the team will not flop if they qualify for next year’s World Cup in Russia.
Nigeria are currently 6 points clear in Group B African qualifying and are on the verge of reaching their sixth World Cup after their 1-1 draw with Cameroon on Monday night in Yaounde.
Mikel said, “I was in the 2014 World Cup team where I thought we didn’t do as well as we should. It was not the best. I hope to go to Russia. We owe Nigerians a better World Cup than Brazil 2014.
“I came into the team and played with great players like Jay Jay Okocha, Nwankwo Kanu and Joseph Yobo who were on their way out.”
He added, “We have a very good young team, probably the youngest I’ve ever played with.”
“If we qualify for Russia 2018, we’ll aim to do much better.”
The Super Eagles’ first World Cup was in 1994 where they reached the second round. Since then they had qualified for every World Cup except Germany 2006.
