A tough test awaits Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, as his Turkish side, Fenerbahce, has been drawn to face English Premier League giants, Arsenal FC, in the UEFA Champions League play-off round.
At the draws conducted in Switzerland on Friday morning, another Super Eagles star, Efe Ambrose, was handed a somewhat ‘fair’ opponent as his team, Celtic, are billed to face Shakhter Karagandy of Kazakhstan for a place in the group stage in Europe’s biggest football tournament.
To make it to this stage, Yobo’s team edged out Austrian side, Red Bull Salzburg, while Ambrose’s Celtic defeated Swedish champions, Elfsborg.
