Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel has said he is “hungry” to a win a second Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Mikel Obi won his first Africa Cup winners’ medal six years ago in South Africa after finishing third in 2006 and 2010.

“I am hungry to win. I come to win. If not, what’s the point?” Mikel told AFP.

“It will be a tough tournament, but we have quality players, we have trained well. So we have a good chance.”

The midfielder has been impressed with the young team who have forged ahead after an early exit at last year’s World Cup in Russia.

“There’s a lot of young players in the team. That’s very good, that means a lot of energy in the team,” said the experienced midfielder, who was not part of the qualifying tournament for this competition after he asked to be left out.

“We have some incredibly talented young players like (Samuel) Chukwueze and Paul (Onuachu). They have to get experience and good enough the coach has given them the opportunity. Hopefully, we are in Egypt to fight because we want to do great things.”
