Super Eagles’ captain, John Obi Mikel put in an impressive performance for Tianjin Teda, even though they suffered their third loss of the season away at Beijing Renhe,
Teda became the first team to stop leaders Shanghai SIPG from picking maximum points last week but failed to capitalize on their performance, as an early strike from Benjamin Moukandjo ensured Teda returned home empty-handed.
