Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has come out to say he believes the Three Lions of England will conquer the World during 21st FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Tianjin TEDA midfielder stated this shortly after the Eagles lost 2-1 to England at the Wembley stadium on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
Goals from Gary Cahill and Harry Kane separated both sides before Arsenal winger, Alex Iwobi, pulled one back for the Eagles but wasn’t enough to savage even a draw for the Nigerian team.
According to Mikel;
“I think they have a good chance of going all the way, because of the youthfulness,the energy of this team, you can feel it. I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, I think that’s why we had issues in the first half.”
Meanwhile, earlier today, the 31-year-old took to his twitter official account to say he’s running to Russia to conquer the world.
His tweet reads;
“Running to Russia like…. Ready for action at #WorldCup 2018.”
