Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo
Fit again Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, says it would be a delight for him to be part of the team that will play the prestige international friendly against London Gunners; Arsenal FC, scheduled for August 5 in Abuja.
Yobo, who is in London at the moment on holidays with his family as well as trying to sort out the transfer jig-saw between his club; Everton and Turkish top side Fernabahce, however, said it would be dependent on whether his team would be in pre-season at that time or if the Super Eagles technical crew think it good for top players to feature in the friendly.
Yobo, who was touted at a point to be on the radar of Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, declared thus: “it would really be nice to play against Arsenal but we have to wait and see how things will turn out”.
Yobo again said he is disturbed by the rumblings over his move to Fernavahce on a permanent basis from Everton, saying he has resigned himself to the will of God.
“No matter how bad the situation seems, I know it would eventually be sorted out the right way,” he said.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, who departed Tuesday night for South Africa along side, NFF Technical Committee Chairman, Christopher Green, said while he is not afraid of any team in the draws he is hoping for a favourable draw on Thursday.
“No team is too small or too big in Africa and world football, but we must avoid some big names but if at the end of the day we are drawn against any of the powerhouses we will have no option but to ensure that we qualify. We want a good draw for the team in the interest of the nation,” he said.
