Mikel was held back in China as he tried to sort out his work permit. Coach Gernot Rohr said after the game against Poland that Mikel was not missed and he invited Porto’s Mikel Agu to replace the Super Eagles skipper for the game against Serbia.

Writing on Instagram on Monday afternoon, Obi Mikel stated : ‘’Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control I will not be on the field for our game v Serbia.

‘’I am sad, and frustrated, but giving my full support to the team for another WIN! #SoarSuperEagles’’.

The Tianjin Teda number ten last wore the Super Eagles jersey in their 4-2 win over Argentina in an international friendly in Krasnodar last November.
