World football governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has added the jersey worn by Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi in the Super Eagles’ win over Iceland at the Russia 2018 World Cup to its museum.
The Mikel Obi-captained Super Eagles defeated Iceland 2-0 at the Volgograd Arena in Russia. It was Iceland’s first defeat at the World Cup.
According to a statement posted on its official Twitter page, FIFA announced that Mikel’s jersey for the encounter would be available for viewing by the public at its museum in Zurich, Switzerland.
“Argentina couldn’t claim three points against hardy newcomers, Iceland, but the Super Eagles did – and they did it in style.

Two beautifully taken goals from winger, Ahmed Musa secured victory for the Super Eagles, who were eventually knocked out of the competition after losing their third group game to Argentina by 2 goals to 1.
