The latest report coming in from Russia suggests that Captain John Mikel Obi is not a sure bet for the Super Eagles ahead of Tuesday’s crucial clash against Argentina.

Mikel injured his wrist in the dying moments of Friday’s game against Iceland and Coach Gernot Rohr indicated that a special waiver may be required to allow the Super Eagles captain face Lionel Messi and his gang.

“The captain (Mikel) has a fracture of the fourth metal cap of the left hand,” disclosed Gernot Rohr at the pre-match press conference on Monday.

Rohr said Mikel’s left wrist is in cast and that permission will be sought from the referee to allow him play with it.

The presence of Mikel is quite important and many will hope a solution is found on time before Tuesday’s kickoff.
