Mikel Obi could possibly miss Super Eagles clash against the Elephants.

Following the two yellow cards recorded against Nigeria’s John Mikel Obi and Fegor Ogude in their last match, there has been a lot of speculations in camp that both Obi and Ogude may have to sit out Super Eagles imminent clash against the Elephants of Cote d'Ivoire   in the quarterfinals of the Nations Cup.
As of Tuesday night, it was still uncertain whether or not the rule will be enforced, however, CAF Media Officer, Emmanuel Maradas maintained that the Technical committee of the football body will make decisions regarding the issue late Wednesday.
"I know that players with one yellow cards are automatically waved as their teams move into the next stage but as for those with two yellow cards like Mikel, the Technical Committee will meet tomorrow (Wednesday) to take a decision on the matter," said the CAF Media Officer, Emmanuel Maradas

The questions is, how will the Super Eagles of Nigeria fair without Mikel Obi, will this be an issue of more harm than good, or do you think they will do just fine without the Chelsea star?
