Mikel: World Cup Ticket Is Dream Come True

Captain Mikel Obi has again expressed his joy at the Super Eagles’ qualification for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“This is really a dream come true,” Mikel told the Nigeria Football Federation. “The team and myself, we worked very hard for this believing we could do it, and we are over the moon that our aspiration has been met.

“I want to commend everyone who has been involved in this: the players, the coaches, the backroom staff, the NFF. It was not easy but we knew from the beginning that we would have to fight hard for every point and we did.”

The former Chelsea star is going to his second World Cup final, after missing the 2010 finals in South Africa with injury.

He was in the squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“There is nothing one can do about that; everything comes in God’s time. I am grateful to God for this ticket and we will go to Russia and give our very best.”
