GOOD or BAD NEWS?: Mikel Fit To Play Against Congo Tomorrow.



Chelsea star, John Obi Mikel, has been cleared to feature in tomorrow’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Congo at the Stade Municipal in Pointe-Noire
The midfielder was initially reported to be a doubt after being excluded from Chelsea’s Uefa Champions League match at NK Maribor and Barclays Premier League game against QPR.
But Eagles’ spokesman, Ben Alaiya, said yesterday that the 27-year-old is ready to take part in the important Afcon qualifier against Congo’s Red Devils. Ealing wring if the injury excuse was  morinho’s style of benching him?
Mikel trained with the rest of the squad on Thursday morning and even “featured in an 11-a-side game.”
“The doubt about whether Mikel will be part of the trip to Pointe-Noire is now cleared up because he is fit. He took part in all of the training session this morning, and featured in an 11-a-side game as well to underscore that he is ready for the match. So I don’t know where the report that he’s doubtful is coming from. Certainly not from us here or Mikel himself,” he said
Mikel has taken part in all of Nigeria’s four matches so far in the 2015 Afcon qualification and the head coach Stephen Keshi, regards him as an important player in his team.
The former FC Lyn-Oslo man has made more than 60 appearances for Nigeria.
Is this bad news for the team or good news? (Thinking*)
