Former Super Eagles’ head coach Christian Chukwu on Tuesday said midfielder Mikel Obi’s absence from the upcoming Nigeria/South Africa clash would not affect the team negatively.

Chukwu told the News Agency of Nigeria that Mikel’s absence from the home and away fixtures against Libya did not affect the Eagles, and would not be different

NAN reports that the Super Eagles will take on the Bafana Bafana on November 17 in Johannesburg in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.



The former Nigeria captain said the Super Eagles were capable of beating Bafana Bafana.

“We should remember that Mikel was not in the matches against Libya and yet Nigeria came out victorious.

“So, his absence in the South Africa match may not have any negative impact on the team,’’ he said.

Chukwu, who captained the Green Eagles to win the 1980 AFCON in Lagos, told NAN that only the coach could specifically say why Mikel was not listed in the squad.

He said coach Gernot Rohr was firmly in charge of the Super Eagles and should be allowed to work with the list of players he wants.

NAN reports that Rohr has invited players for the AFCON qualifier and the international friendly match against Uganda.

South Africa had beaten Nigeria 2-0 in Uyo on June 10, 2017 in their opening game of the qualifiers.
