Super Eagles Training Report: Obi Mikel, Etebo & Joel Obi Stand Out In Winning TeamPublished: May 26, 2018
Team A that contained Francis Uzoho, John Obi Mikel, Joel Obi, Brian Idowu, Abdullahi Shehu, Chidozie Awaziem, Kenneth Omeruo and Oghenekaro Etebo were the winning side in the practice game in the Super Eagles workout on Friday morning after beating Team C in the final, allnigeriasoccer.com is reporting.
And they won largely due to the outstanding performance of Mikel, Joel Obi and Etebo, the trio had such a fine combination of play.
Another highlight of the game was the class of the former Chelsea midfielder whose years of experience and passing abilities shone like stars in the night.
Also of note was Mikel's ability to move and collect passes in space.
Las Palmas's Oghenekaro Etebo and Torino's Joel Obi pressured the opponents when they were with the ball and displayed their shooting skills.
The Super Eagles will depart Uyo for Port Harcourt on Saturday, May 26 for the friendly match against Democratic Republic of Congo next Monday.
