Mikel, Martins plot Harambee’s fall
Chelsea star John Mikel Obi and newly acquired Saunders of America striker in the MLS have been businesslike since they joined the Super Eagles camp Tuesday evening.
While Mikel trained with the rest of the squad and expressed readiness to give his all in the game against Harambee Stars of Kenya, Martins started training with rest of the squad on Wednesday and his impact was immediate, going by his quickness on the ball and general concentration throughout.
“There is no small team anywhere in the world, but we will give our best against Kenya and hopefully we can win”, Martins said. The team had to shift its training schedule to 4:15pm following the hosting of the team by Governor Liyel Imoke on Wednesday afternoon.
“We have decided not to do too much talking but we have the capacity to beat any team in the world and we heard what our opponents have been saying, by Saturday we shall know which is the better side”, Mikel declared on Wednesday.
