Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, is not likely to start when the Eagles confront the Chipolopolo of Zambia in their second match of the African Cup of Nations, AFCON 2013.

An official of the team told PREMIUM TIMES at the Eagles base in Nelspruit that Kenneth Omeruo is likely to be paired with Godffrey Oboabona in the central defense.

The decision of the Eagles technical team to bench the team captain may not be unassociated with his woeful performance in Nigeria’s first match against Burkina Faso.

Candidly, I'm still not comfortable with a defence without Yobo.

One, in the past, Yobo has saved us in critical situations, which his headers, pushing forward. One, an equalizer; the other, a hard-fought lone goal victory that proved critical. Can't recall again but I think it's against all these Rwandas, Malawis. The guy can score

Two, he may have fumbled against Burkina Faso and in a couple of other matches, I still think we cannot discount his experience in big games

Three, leaving our defence in the hands of practically inexperienced Oboabona and Omeruo is risky. For a big game like this for that matter.

Opeee o!

So Stephen Keshi has the sense in dropping that mistake-in-waiting captain!
Re: Yobo To Sit On Bench Against Zambia by Blueeyedboi(m): 2:01pm On Jan 25, 2013
One of the few players that made the squad list purely based on sentiments rather than current form...he's grossly over-rated,past his prime en has absolutely nothing to offer to that defence apart from loads of mistakes en lack of confidence...

Carefully noting everyone happy about this news.

I am waiting to see any of you complain incase anything happens to the defence.

Hopefully Ogboabona and Omerue will perform well as 5 and 6.

Onatzi as 2? hmmm God dey sha. lipsrsealed

Re: Yobo To Sit On Bench Against Zambia by Clemzy16(m): 2:13pm On Jan 25, 2013
For some reasons i think this is a step in the right direction. Yobo has never been a team captain to me; and he made alot of flops in our first game against burkina faso..
Re: Yobo To Sit On Bench Against Zambia by OkikiOluwa1(m): 2:14pm On Jan 25, 2013
Is he injured? If not, his experience is highly needed. Yes, he exhibited a poor leadership command againt B/Faso, yet, he's still needed in the 1st team even if Nigerian football fans don't want him.
Re: Yobo To Sit On Bench Against Zambia by Nobody: 2:17pm On Jan 25, 2013
Echiejile and Musa should clean the bench for him.
Re: Yobo To Sit On Bench Against Zambia by boron10(m): 2:17pm On Jan 25, 2013
Nice call from Keshi. He should also remember to start Moses cos we don't need a supersub. I want us to kill the game before 2nd half. So help us God. cool
