Joseph Yobo: I Slept With 2013 AFCON Trophy By My Side In My Room by reportminds: 6:08pm On Apr 07, 2019
Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo talks about winning the 2013 AFCON, reaching the 100-cap milestone for Nigeria, Merseyside derby and the Eagles’ chances at Egypt 2019 in this interview with ’TANA AIYEJINA.

In a part of the excerpt, he talked about his feeling after lifting the Afcon in 2013.



You are just one of three captains to have lifted the AFCON trophy. What did it feel like lifting up the trophy in South Africa six years ago?



Yobo said: I can’t quantify; words can’t put it together. Everything that I did for the country, every game that I played, six AFCONs, three World Cups showed that I wasn’t a fringe player. But people were saying, ‘Joe, you haven’t won the Nations Cup for the country.’ I can’t do it by myself. So, winning it eventually was the biggest moment for me. And I will tell you today what I haven’t said before – I didn’t want to leave it; that trophy actually slept in my room. So, I having it, was like someone looking for a child for 14 years. It meant everything. Apart from God and my family, that was everything for me.
