Joseph Yobo
Club:Marseille
Position:Defender

At 21, Yobo already has the composure to play anywhere in the back four.

Attackers struggle to beat him off the ball, he never looks troubled in the air and he looks equally comfortable slotting passes through to team-mates further up the field.

He may not have scored yet for the Super Eagles but Yobo's breaks down either flank have provided a number of goals.

He enjoyed a superb African Nations Cup in Mali and should continue to mature alongside the likes of Celestine Babayaro.
