Yobo, who captained the Nigerian team to the 2014 World Cup revealed this an interview with Super Sport.

"I am not imposing players on Gernot Rohr, but I think the likes of Obafemi Martins and Austin Ejide can help strengthen the defective areas. They are experienced players and they know the in and out of Nigeria football."

The Super Eagles lost 2-0 against Serbia at the Hive stadium in London and will group in May for another friendly against the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as the encounter against England at the Wembley Stadium and the Czech Republic in Austria.
