Speaking on SuperSport after the thrilling encounter, Yobo said: “During the penalty shootout – which is a game of chance, we must give credit to the goalkeeper.

“He was immense and his big frame – which is like that of two goalkeepers in the goalpost – made it difficult [for Spain].

“He looked solid and convincing and deservingly, he made a save and gave [his team] the victory.”
