Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, is happy to open his goal account for Tianjin Teda in the Chinese Super League (CSL) this season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Mikel’s 27th minute strike helped Tianjin Teda to a 2-1 comeback win at home against Guangzhou R and F on Saturday.
The win was Tianjin’s second in the league this season which places them in eighth position on eight points in the 16-team league table.
“Great to score. Great to win! Keep pushing lads! 👊,” Mikel wrote on his Twitter handle on Sunday morning.
The former Chelsea midfielder has featured in six league games for Tiajin this season.
Last season, he scored just one goal in 13 league appearances for the club.
He is expected to play a key role for Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where the Supra Eagles will come up against Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in the Group D.
