Mikel “Sad, Frustrated” To Miss Super Eagles, Serbia Friendly

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria captain Mikel Obi is disappointed he will not get the chance to represent the country in Tuesday’s friendly encounter against Serbia, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Mikel could not link up with his teammates in Wroclaw for Friday’s friendly game against Poland which they won 1-0 as he was sorting out his work permit in China, where plays for Chinese Premier League club Tiajin Teda.

The midfielder who has been capped 82 times by Nigeria will also miss the game against Serbia due to the same problem.

The 30-year-old took to Twitter to express his frustration but backed his teammates 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 Twitter on Monday.

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