Illustrious African stars Samuel Eto’o, Sulley Muntari,
Stephen Appiah, Lomana Lualua and Laryea Kingston were
joined by former Nigeria players Nwankwo Kanu, Austin
Okocha, Mutiu Adepoju, Austin Eguavoen and Ben Iroha to
celebrate the 101-cap Yobo.

 They took on Team World led by Eto’o and coached by
former Everton and Manchester United manager David

Moyes, who was assisted by former Nigeria youth coach
Fanny Amun.
The first half ended 4-3 with Yobo scoring just before the
break to keep the scores close.
Yobo switched sides at resumption as Kanu, funnyman
Ayo Makun (AY) and former goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu all
came on.

The game was turned around when pint-sized actor Osita
Iheme (Paw paw) was freed by an Eto’o pass and he shot
past Shorunmu to make it 5-4 as the crowd cheered in
wild applause.

The game was played at the Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium
in Port Harcourt.
At the end of the hour-long encounter, Team Nigeria defeated
Team World 5-4, in front of over 10,000 spectators.
