Ahead of the Russia 2018 World cup qualifier against Algeria on Saturday in Uyo, team captain John Mikel Obi has stated clearly that he and his mates will do everything within their power to defeat Algeria.
“We all know what this match means, why we have to give everything,” Mikel told NFF’s official website.
“Yes, we started the race well by winning in Zambia, but we have to approach this match even more seriously. The Algerians will come with determination and they will play hard, but we will play harder. The World Cup is the biggest stage; every player wants to be there. I am happy we have such a young and energetic team.
