Obi Mikel : Paul Pogba Was Better Than Me TodayChelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel lavished praise on France international Paul Pogba after Monday’s World Cup clash between the Super Eagles and the blues which the Europeans won 2 - 0 to advance to the last 8 of the tournament.

Before the encounter in Brasilia, everyone knew it was going to be huge midfield battle between Mikel and Pogba, and the Nigeria international has acknowledged that Juventus star won the duel.

“It was an incredible duel, it’s true. There were times when I thought he was starting to look tired, but then he went and scored the opening goal.

“I guess that, in the end, he wasn’t that tired! But yes, the two of us had a really good tussle,” Mikel told

“He’s an unbelievable player, isn’t he? He got the better of me today, but I’m sure we’ll come up against each other loads more times in the future. Who knows, maybe even at the next World Cup?”
