Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo said youngsters Kenneth Omeruo and Godfrey Oboabona gave a good account of themselves in the heart of the Eagles defence in their game against Zambia on Friday.
Yobo was rested in the 1-1 draw against Zambia due to injury.
“You have to give credit to the young lads. They played a good game. If not for a bad call by the referee they would have kept a clean sheet,” said Yobo. The Fenerbache of Turkey defender who was fingered for the 1-1 draw against Burkina Faso said that he was doing everything to be fit for the Eagles last group game against Ethiopia.
“I strained my ankle a bit when I went for a tackle early in the game and the medical team felt I was not ready to come back.
