John Obi Mikel has reacted to the Super Eagles' victory over Argentina on Tuesday night as the former Chelsea star admitted that the Eagles struggled in the first half of the game. 
While speaking after the historic 4-2 demolition of Argentina in Russia on Tuesday, captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, John Obi Mikel has reacted to their new system which led to the incredible win in the international friendly match.
Mikel Obi who played all minutes in the game where the Super Eagles had to come back from two goals down to beat the South Americans, admitted that the Super Eagles struggled in the first half, but played a new system in the second half for them to win the match. 
“We played a new system today we never played before so we struggled to find our feet in the first half but at the break, the coach spoke to us and we corrected our mistakes which helped us to fight back. Our team is still work in progress,” Mikel said after the match.
Head coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr also stated clearly that he was happy that his wards came back from two goals down to beat Argentina. 

"It’s good victory for us but it doesn’t mean we’ve become favorites to win the World Cup. We stay humble & realize we have more work to do. We prepared well for this game because playing Argentina is big for us, maybe it is different for them.

“I am happy we came back from 2 goals down to win 4-2. It shows we have great team spirit and determination when you keep fighting after going two goals down against a great team like Argentina.”
