Mikel says’he may quit Eagles after AFCON

Super Eagles captain , Mikel Obi , has hinted that he will call time on his international career after the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt .

The former Chelsea defensive midfielder made his international debut on August 17, 2005 and has since played in two World Cups for the national team with a career spanning over 14 years for the senior national team .

Speaking ahead of the Eagles opening fixture against the Swallows of Burundi , the Eagles captain said he is confident the country will go far judging by their last performance in the country (Egypt ).

“ The last time we were here we won , but we’ ve missed out on a few. But we are confident .

There are just three of us who have the experience but the blend in the team is good. ”

When quizzed about his time with the Eagles and when he would likely call time on his glorious career , the Nigerian international noted that ending his national team affiliation in Egypt would not be a bad idea as he has a sentimental attachment to Egypt which coincidentally is where he played his first AFCON tourney .

“ It’ s not a bad place to finish ! I started here in 2006 and we came 3 rd so Egypt has always been good to me .

This time hopefully we can do better .

I’ m not 100 per cent sure this is my last one but maybe. ”
