Mikel Obi announces his retirement from Super Eagles







Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel has bowed out of the Nigerian national team after the end of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.



The former Chelsea midfielder, who will be plying his trade with Trabzonspor in the Turkish topflight in the new season wrote;



Egypt is a country where I’ve started and have finished my National career. In 2006 I played my first official championship for my Country. 2019 African Cup of Nations marks my last championship for National Team with Super Eagles.









My national career started in 2003 under 17 World Cup and I’m grateful for the national team for placing me on the world arena and giving me an opportunity to show my skill and have an incredible National and International career.



At the age of 32 it’s time for me to retire from the National team and let the youth take over, who’ve done an amazing job securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019.



Thank you to all my Nigerian supporters and to my Country for all the trust, support and love you’ve shown me over the past 15 years.
