Yusuf said he was making his declaration on the basis of the fact that the Italy-based midfielder has had impressive appearances for his club.

He described Obi as a utility player whose experience was highly needed in the Super Eagles.

“Joel Obi is a very good player right from the beginning, and he was outstanding the few times he played for Super Eagles.

“He did very well, both in Inter Milan then and Nigeria, before injury knocked him out and today he is active in Torino,” the coach said.

Speaking on the team’s upcoming friendlies, Yusuf said the Super Eagles would stun Poland and the others they would encounter in the friendlies.

He said the players were in high spirits with the inclusion of new players like Joel Obi and Ikechukwu Gabriel.

“We shall take every match serious, and as they come, because our image and name are involved,’’ the coach said.

Joel Obi played for the Super Eagles the last time in 2014, just before he got injured.(NAN)
