“The World Cup is a big tournament and I want to attend a second one after my first in 2014.”

“A second one for me will be amazing. We have a great young team, but we’re not there yet.

“Three points would have been great, but I’m happy with the one point we got. It was a really tough game.”

The Chinese league footballer, John Obi Mikel, also established that he has no plan to retire from football soon.

“I’m 30 years old and still have a long way to go and I still want to play till God knows when,” he told media in Yaounde.

“But now, I’m not thinking about retirement. I just came back from a very bad injury and now I’m back and finding my way to the field of play. Fitness wise it’s difficult but I am here to help the team”, he noted.
