Nigeria defender Joseph Yobo admits he is excited at the prospect of taking on Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba.
The Everton stopper has first hand experience of Chelsea's hit-man from Premiership action and is now looking forward to resuming battle with the powerful forward.
Nigeria play Ivory Coast in Tuesday's African Cup of Nations semi-final, with Yobo hopeful of guiding the side he has captained in Jay-Jay Okocha's absence to a place in the final.
''Yobo versus Drogba. That's going to be exciting and a real challenge,'' said Yobo.
''A tough one, he's a top player, no doubt about that. I've played against him a few times already.
''It will be very, very exciting. This is a young team that go on and do a lot of good things, hopefully starting here at the Nations Cup.''
