Naija Players Abroad By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 23/11/2018

Super Eagles skipper John Obi Mikel was seen in Nigeria with his Russian partner, Olga Diyachenko, and twins on holiday.

The 33-year-old former Chelsea star reunited for the very first time with his parents and siblings as the midfielder was on vacation in home nation.

Mikel has not been in action for his club Tianjin Teda and missed the later part of the Chinese Super League (CSL) through an injury as they escaped relegation but the Nigerian captain has also missed the recent Super Eagles games after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Mikel, his wife, and his kids received a very warm welcome by his family and friends home based in Nigeria.

Super Eagles were forced to a goalless draw by the Cranes of Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba on Tuesday, November, 20 and the stalemate means Gernot Rohr's men have stretched their unbeaten run to five matches after their 2-1 defeat to Argentine in late June.
