World Championship2018

The captain of the Nigerian national football team played the match with Argentina a few hours after the report of the abduction of his father

John Obi Mikel received demands for redemption, while on the bus on the way to St. Petersburg, where the Nigerian national team was supposed to play with the national team of Argentina. He did not report this to the team and decided to play, as 180 million Nigerians could not fail. The Nigerian team missed the late goal and lost, although a draw brought it to the next stage of the competition.
Obi Mikel’s father was released by the Nigerian police, but tortured for a week in captivity, and is now in hospital.
