"On behalf of the team, we are congratulating Yobo for the 100 caps," Mikel is quoted as saying by allafrica.com. "He remains an inspiration for us in the Super Eagles.
"We wish him more years of appearance for Nigeria. For me personally, I am looking forward to emulating him in the senior national team some day."
Yobo won his first cap for Nigeria back in 2001.
