Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi was on target on Saturday in the Chinese Super League as his club Tianjin Teda recorded a win.

The former Chelsea midfielder who has been in good form since the start of the season put his side back on level terms in the 27th minute after forward Zhizhao Chen had given Guangzhou R&F the lead in the 8th minute.

Tianjin doubled their lead in the 29th minute through a fantastic finish from Jiakang Hui.

The second half of the encounter remained goalless as both sides failed to find the net.

The win moved Teda to 8th position on the table with 8 points from 6 matches.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will surely be happy with Mikel Obi’s recent form as the world cup approaches.

John Mikel Obi will be one of the focal points for Nigeria’s Super Eagles during the world cup.
