Onyekuru Excited To Be Mikel’s Super Eagles Teammate
Anderlecht striker Henry Onyekuru is elated to be in the same national team, at the same time, with his mentor - John Obi Mikel.
Super Eagles trained on Sunday evening in Krasnodar ahead of the international friendly with Argentina scheduled for Tuesday.
“I remember watching this guy play, Winning premier league titles and being a huge inspiration for me and many other kids, Now we are teammates! God is Great! ?#ObiMikel#respect.” He wrote on twitter with two photos of himself and the Tianjin Teda midfielder.
Onyekuru was a second half substitute in the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria on Friday, while Mikel did not feature in the encounter.
Mikel will captain the Nigerian side against a Messi-less Argentina in Russia.
