Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi returned to international football with a goal as Nigeria ran over ten-man Liberia 6-1 in a 2013 Afcon qualifying in Calabar today.

It was Mikel's first appearance for Nigeria in a year and under Stephen Keshi since he took charge in November 2011.
Efe Ambrose, Ahmed Musa, Ikechukwu Uche and a double from Victor Moses saw off the Liberians, who got a consolation from Patrick Wleh.

After a minute of silence for the grieving families of the Mubi massacre, undergraduates killed in Aluu and flood victims, it was the Nigerians who took the initiative with an early goal.
