we shouldnt underrate Mali..Mikel says

Super Eagles midfielder,
John Obi Mikel has
cautioned his teammates
that it would be
calamitous to underrate
their opponents, Mali in Wednesday's semifinal at
the ongoing Africa Cup of
Nations in South Africa. Nigeria qualified for the last
four at the expense of the
Ivory Coast with an impressive
2-1 victory at the Royal
Bafokeng Stadium, Rustenburg
to set up a semifinal date with Mali's Eagles. Mikel is calling on the fans of
the Super Eagles to exercise
restraint ahead of the game
against Mali which he predicts
will be tough. "We cannot afford to look
beyond the semifinals now
because that would be
disrespectful to Mali," Mikel said. The Chelsea midfielder however
stated that the Super Eagles
would go through if the players
approach the game with the
right spirit. "We just have to keep doing
what we are doing and keep
our feet on the ground. We
have to keep training hard and
believing in ourselves and
hopefully we will qualify for the final," he said.
