2018 World Cup: We need Obafemi’s experience in Super Eagles – Yobo tells Rohr

Ex-Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo has urged coach, Gernot Rohr to consider Shanghai Shenhua striker, Obafemi Martins for a return to the national team before the commencement of the 2018 World Cup in June.

Yobo believes Martins’s experience will be useful for the team during the tournament in Russia.

“I am not imposing players on Rohr, but I think the likes of Obafemi Martins and Austin Ejide can help strengthen the defective areas,” Yobo told Vanguard.

“They are experienced players and they know the in and out of Nigeria football”, he said.

Meanwhile, Obafemi scored three goals in a match which helped his team beat Hebei 4-2 in the Chinese Super League at the weekend.

The former Newcastle United and Inter Milan star has earned 42 caps for Nigeria.
