Some of the biggest Africa’s football legends including Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o are expected to be in Lagos, Nigeria for Super Eagles former captain, Joseph Yobo’s testimonial match which will be hosted by the Lagos State Government soon.
The 35-year-old footballer who retired from international football after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, was the first player to reach 100 caps for the senior team and led the team to glory at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
He also represented several clubs in Belgium, France, England and Turkey with varying degrees of success.
Adeboye Anthony Adeyinka, Senior Special Assistant on Sports to the Lagos State Governor, told Goal.com, “The match will be played in Lagos but it will not be a Lagos thing alone because Yobo played for Nigeria so it will also be a Federation event.
“When he was playing in Nigeria, he was a respected person. When he played abroad he was never red-carded in any match.
All his coaches will testify to what I have said and they will be invited to the testimonial.”
