Infantino congratulates Yobo ahead testimonial match

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has congratulated former Nigeria skipper Joseph Yobo on his testimonial slated for Friday in Port Harcourt.
FIFA, in a letter personally signed by Infantino and addressed to NFF president, wrote: “Many thanks for your letter dated May 17, 2016 and informing us of the testimonial match in honour of former international player and Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo.
“On this occasion, allow me to congratulate and send my best wishes to Joseph Yobo for his future activities.”
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have released Super Eagles skipper John Mikel Obi and his assistant, Ahmed Musa, to honour Yobo in Friday’s testimonial game, leaving them out of the international friendly with Mali in France on the same day.
Joseph Yobo’s testimonial game, slated for the Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium, will feature a Team Joseph Yobo (comprising of Super Eagles’ players of Yobo’s generation) and a Rest of The World squad.
