Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi says the team will perform well in the Poland vs Nigeria friendly despite the absence of captain John Obi Mikel.

Mikel will miss the match due to issues concerning his work permit in China.

But Onazi assured that there was no cause for alarm as the squad was set to go.

“We are doing well and everyone is happy to be back again to represent our dear country and the spirit here is very high.

“The training has been going on well and come Friday night we will be ready to take to the pitch.

“We all know our captain will be missing from the game, but I’m confident the rest of us here can hold our own and give Poland a good game.

“Hopefully, we will win for him,” Onazi told AOIFootball.com

The Trabzonspor midfielder is expected to captain Nigeria in the absence of skipper Mikel Obi when they file out against Poland tonight.

The game will be played at the Municipal Stadium, Wraclow in Poland and kick off is 8.45pm.
