Yakubu rejects Nigeria

Last updated : 13 May 2004 By Alex Dale
Ayegbini Yakubu was previously called into the Nigeria squad for the African Nations Cup in January, but was sent home early after being accused of breaking a club curfew.

It seems unlikely that the Yak will play for Nigeria again, as a club spokesman stated his reason for declining the invite was that "Yakubu still feels he was harshly treated during the African Nations Cup."
