The duo of Vincent Enyeama and Emmanuel Emenike have arrived Nigeria for the Joseph Yobo slated for the 27th in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, fcnaija.com can confirm.
The duo – both retired from international football – are presently in the country as they try to relax after a long season, as well as getting set for the testimonial match, which will be played in honour of Yobo.
Both Enyeama and Yobo are close friends with the former Super Eagles captain. Yobo forged good relationship when they both played for the Super Eagles, with the former Everton defender playing Enyeama’s best man at his wedding in 2006.
Yobo, 35, also became close friends with Emenike, when both men played in Turkey, and the relationship blossomed when Emenike began playing for the Super Eagles.
Meanwhile, several other international football stars are also expected, with Chelsea captain John Terry and former African footballers of the year, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.
Also expected are current Super Eagles stars John Obi Mikel and Ahmed Musa, as well as former Everton manager, David Moyes.
