Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi was full of emotion as he broke out in tears following the super eagles exit from the world Cup
The Super Eagles were knocked out of the on going World Cup in Russia after a painful 2-1 defeat to their arch rivals Argentina
The Super Eagles needed just a draw to qualify from the group ahead of the Argentines and looked to be well on their way before caving in to the barrage of pressure from the Argentines and conceding an 86th minute goal courtesy of Marcos Rojo
A very emotional Mikel speaking immediately after the game believes the Eagles gave their very best.
“It’s what it is.” A visibly teary eyed Mikel said
“Nothing to say. We conceded two goals, we did everything we could.”
“I think my team did everything we could, we stood our ground.”
This is the 5th time Argentina have beaten The Super Eagles at the World Cup
