Super Eagles captain to the 2019 African Cup
of Nations in Egypt, John Obi Mikel has
announced his retirement from the national
team.
Mikel made the announcement via his
Instagram page on Thursday.
Mikel, a Chelsea legend, featured for just two
matches against Burundi and Madagascar in
the tournament.
Announcing his retirement from national duty,
he 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. “
