Yobo: A Dream Come True

Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo was short of words following their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations victory, saying that winning the title was a dream come true.

The long-serving Nigerian did not get as much game time as he would have liked in South Africa, but is still a massive influence in the team after so many years with the squad.

The player admitted that he was playing in his last AFCON tournament, and revealed that he had been praying to finish on a high by winning the tournament.

"It feels great. I first have to thank God, its a dream come true. This is my sixth AFCON, and I said it was going to be my last, not because I cannot play anymore but because I gave it a long time," he said.

"I was praying to God before the tournament that we will win it and God gave me that so I'm delighted. I feel so blessed.

"I'm so grateful to everybody, and the coach (Stephen Keshi). I am short of words because it's a massive achievement for me in my national team career," he concluded.
