No misunderstanding in Eagles – Yobo


Super Eagles Captain, Joseph Yobo says there is no controversy in the team’s camp as was reported in some national dailies, adding that the team’s focus was the match ahead of them.

“There is no cause for alarm, we are intact and focused ahead of the match against Ethiopia. There is nothing like a misunderstanding in the camp, we are a family and such story is a distraction and we are not going to allow that to distract us,” Yobo said

The former Everton defender said there are no longer underdogs in modern day football, hence the Eagles have to perfect their strategy before the Ethiopia match because the match is a must win for them.

Meanwhile Olympic Marseille left full back, Taye Taiwo, has promised Nigerians that the Eagles will take the Antelopes to the cleaners today.

Taiwo said the match is important and Nigerians would see a better Eagles compared to the one the fans saw against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in  February.

“We are going to take the Ethiopians to the cleaners, nothing will be taken for granted and the fans will see a better Eagles against the Antelopes. Nevertheless we are just beginning to know ourselves, I mean old and new players and we all know that the team is passing through a building process.

“The players are there but the only thing is to have a formidable team which very soon will be the team to beat. Our coach, Samson Siasia, is a good coach and he will bring the best out of the players,” Taiwo said.
