Unity spells success for Eagles
Super Eagles' midfielder, John Mikel Obi has said the side's driving force at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa is togetherness and unity of purpose that was in the past missing from the squad.
The Eagles will on Sunday in Soweto, Johannesburg clash with their Burkinabe counterparts, the Stallions, in the final of the biennial football fiesta.
The Chelsea midfield maestro said the new found sense of togetherness will see them overcome the Burkinabes' hurdle in Sunday's Afcon final at the National Stadium in Soweto.
"We're together, united and playing for each other and that has accounted for where we are today.
"All credits must go to the coach who took a gamble on a very young squad because I’m just 25 years old but I'm looking like the oldest in the team.
"This team will not only win the trophy on Sunday for the Nigerian people but will win many more trophies for a long time to come," he said.
