Chelsea blames Mikel for England’s first goal

In their review of the friendly between host England and Nigeria, the official website of Chelsea FC has stated that the club blamed their former player John Obi Mikel for the first goal conceded by the Super Eagles of Nigeria Team in their 2-1 loss to England at Wembley on Saturday.
Blues captain Gary Cahill rose to power a header in after six minutes to give England the lead, and television replays clearly show that Mikel and William Troost-Ekong were caught ball watching as the ball was floated in by Kieran Trippier.
”Gary Cahill was on target for England at Wembley, as the Three Lions stepped up their 2018 World Cup preparations with victory over Nigeria.
”The Chelsea skipper opened the scoring after just seven minutes, powering home a trademark header after escaping the attentions of former Chelsea player, John Mikel Obi, to meet a Kieran Trippier corner.”
Victor Moses, Kenneth Omeruo and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were the other Chelsea players that featured in the friendly, while Ola Aina was a non-playing substitute.
