Mikel Slams Eagles For Nations Cup Absence
Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi has blamed the team for not doing enough to qualify for the on-going Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea .
Nigeria crashed out on the final day of the qualifying tournament following its 2-2 with South Africa in a match it needed to win.
“Of course it is painful. We all wanted to be at the biggest stage in Africa , especially as we are the holders. But we all know many factors contributed to our inability to qualify, and the less said about it the better.”
Nigeria ’s huge disappointment has meant Mikel will now have to concentrate on his English Premier League club Chelsea.
