Nigeria international John Obi Mikel shared the space in his trophy cabinet as he eyes his second Africa Cup of Nations title in Egypt.

The former Chelsea star has enjoyed an illustrious career, winning various titles and individual awards, including the African Young Player twice, and the Goal Nigeria Player of the Year in 2013.

Following his return to England in January, Mikel's contributions were not enough to secure a playoff spot for Middlesbrough, as they finished seventh in the Championship table.

After a lengthy absence from international duty, the 32-year-old has been included in Gernot Rohr's 25-man provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

He has now shifted his focus to winning a second Afcon title with the Super Eagles after their last successful outing in 2013.
