The former Rivers state FA boss feels the duo will strengthen the Super Eagles by increasing competition for places in Stephen Keshi’s squad.
“Really I don’t have any qualms about that because those two players are Nigerian players. Keshi insists Yobo is the captain and once you’re a captain you are a member of the squad. In fact, he is the head of the team.
“It will be good to also invite Ike Uche back to the team. It will bring strength, it will bring competition and all I’m craving as the chairman of the technical committee of the federation is to get our best legs to play at the world Cup,” he told Brila FM
Yobo joined Norwich City in the English Premier League on loan from Fenerbahce on transfer deadline day to improve his chances of getting regular football.
Uche, meanwhile, has been in incredible form for Villarreal this season, scoring 12 goals in 19 games.
