Mikel, Oboabona Tip Eagles For Glory In 2014

Two of the regular team players of the Super Eagles under Stephen Keshi, John Obi Mikel and Godfrey Oboabona have said they foresee a better national team next year, which is a World Cup year but warned against complacency on the part of the players.
Mikel, who plays for Chelsea in the English Premier League, EPL and defence ace Godfrey Oboabona, were speaking after the friendly match against Italy’s Azzuri at the Craven Cottage in London.
Mikel who spoke first declared that Nigeria has the potentials to upset the world at next year’s World Cup, if the players played with the same spirit that enabled the team win the African championship in South Africa early this year.
“The potentials are obvious but we must avoid arrogance and complacency. With that this team will go places”, he said.
Oboabona spoke in a similar vein, declaring that he learned a lot from playing against the Italians.
“I noticed that before any player moves the other person already knows where to run. They were very clever with the ball and I told some of my teammates that we must borrow that style of play from them. If we do that with the type of technical crew we have at the moment, our team will go places”, Oboabona said.
