Why i want to sacrifice my No.10 for Super Eagles - Mikel Obi

Former Chelsea star and Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has stated that if it requires him to sacrifice his role in the team against Iceland and Argentina, he would do so.

Nigerians blasted Mikel Obi for his display in the 2-0 loss to Croatia last Saturday. Mikel played the No.10 role, according to Gernot Rohr's formation.

A lot of experts and fans have called for Rohr to play the Tianjin TEDA midfielder in a withdrawn role in subsequent games and Mikel Obi, speaking to the press on Wednesday, says he is open to the idea.

“I am the captain of this team. If I have to sacrifice for this team to progress, I will.

“If I have to sacrifice a position, go play wherever, I will do that for this team to win games,” he said.

Speaking ahead of Friday’s match against Iceland, he added: “We are very hopeful and confident because everything is still in our own hands. It just depends on how much we want it.

“The result against Croatia was disappointing but we can fix it.”
