Abuja - Chris Green, the Nigeria Football Federation's technical committee chairman, has backed the return of Joseph Yobo and Ikechukwu Uche to the national team.
The former Rivers State Football Association boss feels the duo will strengthen the Super Eagles by increasing competition for places in Stephen Keshi's squad, Kick Off Nigeria reports.
"Really I don’t have any qualms about that because those two players are Nigerian players," Green told Brila FM.
