Nigerians on social media have reacted to the retirement of ex-Chelsea star, John Obi Mikel from international football.
It would be recalled that Mikel on Thursday afternoon announced his retirement from the Super Eagles, via his Instagram page.
The 32-year-old said, “Egypt is a country where I’ve started and have finished my National career. In 2006 I played my first official championship for my Country. 2019 African Cup of Nations marks my last championship for National Team with Super Eagles.

“My national career started in 2003 under 17 World Cup and I’m grateful for the national team for placing me on the world arena and giving me an opportunity to show my skill and have an incredible National and International career.

“At the age of 32 it’s time for me to retire from the National team and let the youth take over, who’ve done an amazing job securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019.

“Thank you to all my Nigerian supporters and to my Country for all the trust, support and love you’ve shown me over the past 15 years.”
However, Mikel’s retirement from international football did not come as a shock to some Nigerian fans.
The Trabzonspor star only featured for just two matches against Burundi and Madagascar at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Egypt for Nigeria.
