We will build on the away goal - Mikel

Mikel and Cahill celebrate a goal
Super Eagles and Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi is basking in the euphoria of his Champions League goal at Paris Saint Germaine (PSG), but disappointed this team eventually lost the crucial first leg. What he said below:

“I had to fall in because he (Lucas) was going deeper and deeper into our 18-yard box,” Mikel told BT Sport. 

“I had to, if not get the ball, foul him, which I did. And then the free kick as well just skipped off my feet and went into the back of the net. “But we came back strong as well, but we’re very disappointed to have lost the game. “We know they’re a very good team. Our aim was to come out here and get a goal and we’ve done that tonight. We still have the second leg to play back home, so we have to take that back home and capitalise on that and make sure we build on that.” 

PSG travel to Stamford Bridge on March 9 with a 2 – 1 lead, however Chelsea just need a goal to defeat the French side.
