Mikel Obi says qualifying for World Cup is a dream come true

Chelsea and Super Eagle midfielder, Mikel Obi, who was a fan favourite in the World Cup qualifying match against Kenya that Nigeria won last weekend spoke on Brila FM radio in Lagos and assured Nigerians of a better outing in South Africa next year.

"First, it is a dream come true. I mean it is a good thing that we will be at the World Cup after missing out in the previous edition. I can not imagine Nigeria not being in the World Cup.

"Honestly speaking, it would have been another disaster for this country, but thank God we qualified and will be among other teams representing their countries. But I want to assure soccer fans that come 2010 World Cup in South Africa, they will not be disappointed.
