#HOUSEYARNS – CAPTAIN MIKEL TO JOIN EAGLES CAMP ON TUESDAY IN UYO
Super Eagles skipper Mikel Obi is due to join the team’s training camp in Uyo on Tuesday ahead of an AFCON qualifier against Tanzania.
The AFCON clash is billed for Saturday afternoon inside the Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo. Mikel, fresh from leading the Nigeria to Olympic bronze in Brazil, is expected to arrive at the team’s Le Meridien Hotel on Tuesday, team officials disclosed.
Both the Super Eagles and Taifa Stars have little other than pride to battle for in Saturday’s game, as Egypt’s Pharaohs have already picked the lone ticket from the group to Gabon.
But the Eagles and their new coach Gernot Rohr will use the match as a rehearsal for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Series Matchday 1 clash with Zambia in Ndola on 8th October.
