Mikel, Moses, Ighalo to Return for England Friendly

Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that skipper Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses will return to the side for this weekend’s friendly game against England.

China-based Mikel and Ighalo were rested for the 1-1 draw against DR Congo Monday night in Port Harcourt, while Victor Moses will only join up with the rest of the squad after he was allowed an extended break following Chelsea’s extended run in the FA Cup.

“We will have Victor Moses, Mikel and Ighalo for the England match,” Gernot Rohr told newsmen after the clash with Congo DR.

Rohr earlier stated that Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will be fully fit to return to action against The Three Lions on Saturday.

Saturday’s clash will be the third meeting of the two teams – England won the first game 1-0, while the two teams played out a goalless draw at the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan.
