Mikel, Moses On The Verge Of History At FIFA Club World Cup

Mikel Obi and Victor Moses who were on Thursday named as part of the 24-man Chelsea team that will take part in the Fifa Club World Cup, that kicks off in Japan on December 6, are on the verge of making history if Chelsea eventually lifts the trophy.

If that be the case, the duo will become the first Nigerian winners of the tournament, though Nwankwo Kanu and Finidi George won with Ajax in 1995, when it was called the Intercontinental Cup.

Mikel has made 21 appearnces for the Blues this season in all competitions without a goal while Moses has made 12 appearances with three goals.

The duo were left out of Chelsea’s last match against Fulham on Wednesday but could come back into the side in Saturday’s derby away to West Ham.
