Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi was an absentee in Tianjin TEDA’s exit from the Chinese FA Cup yesterday after they fell 1-0 to Beijing Guoan in the fifth round of the competition.
Beijing’s goal was scored by Jonatan Soriano in the 69th minute as they marched into the next round of the competition.
Mikel is expected to return to action for Tianjin TEDA when they take on Guizhou Zhicheng in their next league game on Sunday.
The 31-year old has recorded just one goal since the beginning of this season.
