Egypt is where I’ve begun and have completed my National profession. In 2006 I played my first official title for my Country. 2019 African Cup of Nations denotes my last title for National Team with Super Eagles.

My national profession began in 2003 under 17 World Cup and I’m appreciative for the national group for setting me on the world field and allowing me a chance to demonstrate my aptitude and have a unimaginable National and International vocation.

At 32 years old it’s the ideal opportunity for me to resign from the National group and let the young dominate, who’ve worked admirably verifying a bronze decoration at AFCON 2019.

Much obliged to you to all my Nigerian supporters and to my Country for all the trust, backing and love you’ve demonstrated me in the course of recent years.

Mikel out!
