“Maybe we could have killed it with one or two more goals.

    I must salute Mikel’s artistry in boro’s midfield. But it’s important for Mikel to state his position about the national team – the super eagles. I was expecting that this would be Mikel’s last nation’s cup and tournament for Nigeria and he should have been plotting as the captain to win the cup a second time but he seem not to be showing any signs towards that. In 2006,okocha was part of the national team and was on the bench with injury which was his last tournament for Nigeria.so Mikel should state his stand on this issue. It’s about over 200 million people and their happiness and not about any internal issues Mikel may have with any one in the team.
