The Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi has expressed doubts about the Nigerian international player, Mikel Obi showing up for the friendly match against Mexico.
The Nigerian team is to face Mexico in Houston, Texas, on May 31 to prepare for a hectic schedule in June when they will play two World Cup qualifiers as well as feature in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
While the Super Eagles are in Germany, Mikel is in England to process an entry visa to Brazil in time for the Confederations Cup.
Keshi, who is currently in the Eagles training camp in Germany, told MTNFootball.com, “I’m not sure he’s coming,”
“Our initial agreement with Chelsea was for them to drop off both Mikel and Victor Moses after their game. But now he is pursuing a visa to Brazil. We’re also not sure about his condition, if he is fit or not. And so, Mikel might not be there with us.”
But while Mikel is unavailable, Chelsea have said Moses is expected to be fully fit again by July 6. Keshi said the English Premier League club have informed his team official they expect Moses to be back playing again in less than two months. Chelsea say Moses has been battling injuries towards the end of the season and as such he is unavailable for the series of matches involving Nigeria.
