Mikel Obi is fit for the final group game against Argentina- Gernot Rohr


Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has announced that team captain John Mikel Obi, who sustained a hand injury in Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup clash against Iceland, will be fit for the final group game against Argentina at the Krestovsky Stadium on Tuesday.

Mikel was in noticeable pains towards the end of the game and was attended to by the medics.

Rohr’s men sit in second position in Group D with three points, while Argentina occupy last place after they were thrashed 3-0 by Croatia on Thursday.

A win against the South Americans will send the Super Eagles into the second round while a draw could be enough depending on the outcome of the game between Croatia and Iceland.
