The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, known as the Total 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, is scheduled to commence in June 2019 in Egypt with the Super Eagles of Nigeria expected to deliver a rousing showing at the biennial event.
Nigerians have as a result of this started a debate on whether Mikel Obi should be re-invited or not via their Twitter handle.
What Nigerians are saying:
See ehn, I rate Mikel very highly, but we must be careful not to grant any player 'god' mentality. I learnt a long time ago that "nature abhors a vacuum", life quickly fills up vacated spaces. We must keep moving with the times… https://t.co/L07ojbb6vo

There is nothing Mikel Obi can do in this present eagles that Nwakali can’t do on the pitch ..How old was Micheal Owen when he rep England at the WC .. how old was Mbappe in the last WC …but this is Nigeria … Absurdities is our second name ..

The way we do things in Naija, Mikel will go to Afcon as a fringe player, like Yobo in 2013 and Okocha in 2006.They won't be active….lol

I believe Kelechi Nwakali very much fits on that throne. The earlier Rohr give that guy the chance the better but i sense bad blood.
I believe Mikel is still relevant though but Kelechi shld begin to be the person to fill that void.
