Nigeria vs Serbia: Mikel Obi “frustrated” to miss Tuesday’s game

Captain of the Super Eagles, John Obi Mikel, has expressed his frustration at missing out of Tuesday’s friendly match against Serbia.

Mikel Obi could not link up with his team-mates in Wroclaw for last Friday’s friendly game against Poland which they won 1-0 as he was sorting out his work permit in China.

The Tianjin TEDA midfielder will also miss the game against Serbia due to the same problem.

He took to Twitter to express his frustration, but backed his team-mates to record another win, as they continue their build-up towards Russia 2018.

“Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control I will not be on the field for our game v Serbia tomorrow. I am sad, and frustrated, but giving my full support to the team for another WIN! #SoarSuperEagles,” the former Chelsea midfielder wrote on Monday.

Tuesday’s game will kick off at 8pm at the Hive, Barnet FC Stadium, London.
