Hope is in the air for Chelsea midfielder star John Obi Mikel to be named in the Super Eagles squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in Uyo next month.

Super Eagles’ Manager, Gernot Rohr, was hoping that the team’s captain, John Obi Mikel would have fully recovered from the injury that kept him out of the AFCON qualifier against South Africa before the country’s Russia 2018 World Cup eliminator against Cameroon in August.

He lasted the distance in Tianjin Teda’s 2-0 loss to Hebei CFFC in the Chinese Super League yesterday.

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is expected to announce his roster for the World Cup qualifier against the African champions this week.
