Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye has revealed that senior national team captain,

John Obi Mikel will be in the squad to face South Africa in a Cameroun 2019 African Nations Cup qualifier next month.

Mikel was conspicuous in his absence from a list of players released by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Monday ahead of a friendly match against Corsica later this month and the first phase of preparations for the game against the Bafana Bafana.

But Ibitoye clarified the situation in a tweet yesterday, saying, “the 25-man Super Eagles list out on Monday is for the Corsica friendly/Paris camp, not for the 2019 AFCON clash versus South Africa.
