Nigeria: 'Mikel, Key to Eagles' Success' - Babangida

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Tijani Babangida, has tipped Chelsea midfielder, Mikel Obi, to be the key in Nigeria's quest for a third Africa Cup of Nations title.

The ex-Ajax Amsterdam winger told MTNFootball.com that Mikel's displays for Chelsea as well as his performances in the Eagles had shown that he would play a pivotal role in the Eagles in South Africa.

He also spoke generally about Stephen Keshi's team at the 2013 Africa Cup of nations.
