HE WILL WEAR A ARM GUARD! Mikel to play with a fractured hand against Argentina


Mikel Obi

Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi would play against Argentina in the all-important last match in the Group Games of the Russia World Cup on Tuesday in St Petersburg.

Recall that the Tiajin Teda trojan sustained a wrist injury during Nigeria’s 2-0 win against Iceland at the Volgograd Arena on Friday.

Though his injury caused so much panic in the team, the coach Gernot Rohr quelled the fears during a post-match conference where he said it was a minor injury that would not stop him from leading out the Eagles against Argentina.

A reliable source from the Eagles camp confided yesterday that the Captain instead would wear a protective arm guard in the battle against Argentina.

The source said,

“The injury is not as we first thought. Mikel has a Lion-heart. He’ll be wearing an arm guard to play the match.”

Argentina needs a win to survive early dismissal from the World Cup.
