Confusion! Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi officially changes name

The midfielder was not supposed to be called ‘Mikel’. The Nigerian was born John Michael Nchekwube Obinna but the name Mikel became a thing when the Nigerian FA mistakenly used Mikel instead of Michael on his submission form for the 2003 FIFA Under-17 World Championships.
