— Yobo Prefers Victory To 100 Caps
It was a smooth one hour, thirty minutes flight for the Super Eagles and its officials from Campinas to Porto Alegre, as the team gears up for Wednesday’s Group F decider against former World Champions, Argentina.
Aboard the TAM Airline with the Super Eagles were the Vice President of the NFF, Chief Mike Okeke Umeh, House Of Reps members led by Vice Chairman, House Committee on Sports, Alhaja Ayo Omidiran, Coach Stephen Keshi and his crew, and all the 23 players registered for the tournament.
The team is quartered at the Holiday Inn Hotel, about 10 minutes drive from the airport. The good news for the team is that defence Trojan, Godfrey Itama Oboabona is back in training. He trained with his teammates on Monday afternoon.
The team departed for training immediately it settled down at about 2:15pm local time, which is 6:15 in Nigeria.
Meanwhile Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, has stated he prefers a win on Wednesday to his much advertised attainment of a 100 caps if featured in the match against Argentina.
“It’s good news that I will reach that milestone but what is uppermost in my mind is for the team to win and for us to advance to the next stage. The rest will be a bonus,” Yobo said on Monday.
