Super Eagles Mikel Obi To Play Argentina Match With Injury


It has been revealed that Super Eagles Captain, Mikel Obi will be playing in the teams match with Argentina tomorrow despite having a fractured metacarpal.

This was revealed by German tactician, Gernot Rohr who feels that despite the Super Eagles injury, the captain can still play a part against La Albiceleste tomorrow evening. He remains positive John Obi Mikel will play against Argentina despite confirming the Tianjin Teda midfielder suffered fractured metacarpal against Iceland.

Recall that the 31-year-old Super Eagles Captain was hurt in the 2-0 victory at Volgograd Arena but still has to play the latter part of the make or drop clash in pains. While speaking to Super Eagles TV, Rohr who refused to rule Mikel out of the crunch tie against Jorge Sampaoli’s men while disclosing that his team looks set said:

"Unfortunately there is one injury. We have the captain who has a fracture of the metacarpal, but I think he can play with a cast.

“So, the medical team is working on him.

“We are now preparing for our next game against Argentina. We’re focused on this game and we’ll do all to prepare this team in the best way possible.” He added.

The three-time African kings landed in St. Petersburg on Sunday evening, and they will train on Monday at the Saint Petersburg Stadium. Nigeria are on the periphery of elimination after two games and must avoid defeat against La Albiceleste to progress to the Round of 16.
