The Lagos State Government is set to celebrate the career of former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo who became the first Nigerian to reach 100 national cups and retired afterwards. A befitting testimonial match will be held in his honour soon. 
 Adeboye Anthony Adeyinka, Senior Special Assistant on Sports to the Lagos State Governor disclosed to Goal that “The match will be played in Lagos but it will not be a Lagos thing alone because Yobo played for Nigeria so it will also be a Federation event.” 
The former defender made his debut for the national team on March 24, 2001 in an Africa Nations Cup qualifier against Zambia in Chingola. He featured in three FIFA World Cup Finals as well as six African Cup of Nations Finals.
