Super Eagles skipper John Obi Mikel will be in action when Nigeria take on Libya in back to back Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers according to coach of the team Gernot Rohr.
Most Nigerians feared the worst when the Tianjin Teda midfielder asked to be excused from Nigeria’s game against Seychelles as it came at a time when his former Chelsea teammate Victor Moses announced his retirement from the team.
