International return for Yak

International return for Yak

Yakubu has been recalled to the Nigeria international set up for the upcoming match against Rwanda.

Yak has been out of the Nigerian national squad for a while now after earlier in the season claiming that he wanted to concentrate on club commitments before returning to represent his country.

That tactics has certainly paid dividends with the big man bagging 13 goals in 17 starts for Rovers so far in an individually impressive campaign.

Yakubu is due to leave Rovers to join up with the side managed by Stephen Keshi on the 26th of February (the day after we face Manchester City at Eastlands) and so end his 'semi-retirement' from the international game.

This was always going to happen - nobody in the Nigeria set up can even half his goal tally!

Most of His goals are from inside the 18 yard box, no 'long rangers'. In African football tap ins and goals from inside the 18 yard box are RARE. He should know that!!!

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
