IF former Super Eagles Captain, Joseph Yobo, has his way, he would rewind the clock and start his international career afresh. After wearing 101 caps for the national team, Yobo cannot single out any special cap from the lot.
“I feel fulfilled playing for Nigeria. In fact, all the matches were special. I cannot tell you I treasure this one more than the other. Whether it was a friendly game or a World Cup, there was this special feeling I had anytime I put on the national colours”, he said.
He continued; “Whether it was my debut against Zambia or my 87th against Rwanda when I became the most capped Nigerian at the time or the game against Argentina, where I became the first Nigerian to reach 100 or even the last one against France, every moment was special”.
As all roads lead to Port Harcourt for Yobo’s Centenary Testimonial on Friday, he urged the new generation of Eagles to be more committed to the national team.
“I am privileged to be the first Nigerian player to make FIFA’s exclusive Century Club. I feel so glad to have reached that milestone for my country. The younger ones should give the national team all their best. It is a privilege to be deemed worthy to wear the national colours in a country of over 170 million people”, he noted.
