David Moyes has joined Bolton's Sam Allardyce in protesting
against friendlies arranged by Nigeria ahead of the African Nations
Cup next year.
Nigeria have agreed to play Japan in Tokyo in a warm-up midweek
game on 20 August, much to Moyes's disapproval.
Everton defender Joseph Yobo and Bolton midfielder Jay-Jay
Okocha have been named in the squad for the match, which takes
place three days before the Blues game with Fulham.
While Big Sam has already spoken out on losing one of the most
valued members of his squad several times already, now Moyes is
unhappy at the prospect of being without Yobo.
"We don't want Joseph to go and hopefully we can come
to an agreement," said Moyes.
