My Wife Family Will Kill Me If…. Star Footballer Mikel Obi Speaks About Nigeria’s Performance In World Cup


Super Eagles midfielder, John Mikel Obi in a recent interview with FIFA.COM opened up on his personal motivation for Nigeria to qualify for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup as it\’s because his Russian wife, Olga Diyachenko\’s family are supporting Nigeria. In his words:

My wife is Russian and many of our relatives and friends are from Russia. They are all expecting Nigeria to qualify for the next World Cup. I think they will kill me if I fail them,” 
We are in a very good position in our group. We have two wins from two games, and in our last game we beat Algeria at home. We have a very good young team and the players play good football. If we can win our next match (at home to Cameroon on 31 August) it will edge us closer to qualification. I think we can go through.
