He expressed delight over being able to secure the services of major international players.

Preparations for the game has taken Yobo to his old stomping grounds in Europe.

“It has been amazing. Almost everybody wants to come and play,” he said. “My only regret is that I can’t invite everybody.”

At Everton where he spent nearly a decade of his playing career, Yobo was warmly received by the entire club.

Fans gave him a standing ovation at half time of the club Premier League game against Bournemouth.
