Yobo Dreads Argentina


Skipper of the Super Eagles and Fenerbache of Turkey defender, Joseph Yobo, has said that the 1 June international friendly against Argentina would not be an easy task for him and his teammates.

Both teams would renew their rivalry at the Abuja National Stadium, after the South Africa 2010 World Cup, where the Argentines won 1-0 and Yobo believes the South Americans would not be easy nuts to crack despite the clash holding in Nigeria.

Yobo, who scored the winner as his club emerged champions of the Turkish League at the weekend, disclosed that in as much as they would like to retaliate the 0-1 defeat handed the team at the World Cup, he still admits that defeating their opponents won’t be easy.

“Argentina are a good side, they have talented footballers. I’ve also heard that they would not be coming with their established players; that does not mean that the match would be an easy one for us, we are going to approach the match as if it is a World Cup match,” he said.

He also projected into the 5 June 2012 Nations Cup qualifier against the Wayla Antelopes of Ethiopia, saying that they would be hitting Addis Ababa with the sole aim of defeating the hosts and picking the three points at stake, which would also put them in pole position for the Nations Cup.
