Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi has announced his retirement from the national team.
The 32-year-old retired after Nigeria’s third-place finish in Egypt.
Mikel took to his verified Instagram page to make the announcement.
Spotting his photo in the national colours, the former Chelsea ace wrote: “Egypt is a country where I’ve started and have finished my National career.
“In 2006 I played my first official championship for my country. 2019 African Cup of Nations marks my last championship for National Team with Super Eagles.
“At the age of 32, it’s time for me to retire from the National team and let the youth take over, who’ve done an amazing job securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019.
