Joseph Yobo at 2013 AFCON - Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has said he is happy at renewing the rivalry between himself and Mali captain, Seydou Keita, which dates back to when both players featured for their countries at the Under-20 level.
Nigeria takes on Mali Wednesday in the semi-final of the 2013 AFCON in South Africa.
“That is a long time now and I am happy that after several years both us are still playing active football and are the captains of our national teams,' Yobo said Tuesday afternoon here.
Meanwhile, Nigeria's dreadlocked musician, Flavour, who was in the stands when the Super Eagles shocked Cote d'Ivoire last Sunday, has said he expects Eagles striker and a personal friend of his, Emmanuel Emenike, to score more goals and power the country to the trophy.
Emenike, who has so far scored three goals for Nigeria, is in the running for the top scorer’s award and is known to be a personal friend of the talented musician, who shuttles between his Nigerian and South African bases.
Flavour is again expected in the stands to cheer his friend on Wednesday at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
