Following a well publicized fall-out with coach Stephen Keshi that led to his being dropped from the national squad, Osaze Odemwingie seems to have made an apology of sorts, stating his desire to represent the country again.
Odemwingie has been left out of the Super Eagles since February 2012,after he fell out with coach Stephen Keshi and also the Nigerian Football Federation(NFF),taking to the social media,Twitter, to vent his anger.
“ I would like to play international football again of course, if my country calls on me I will go and help them, I can never say no to my country,” Odemwingie said on the BBC while acting as a pundit in Nigeria’s game against Tahiti in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
The West Brom attacker also had a problem with his club,after he failed to secure a move away from the club in January,to join Queens Park Rangers.
But Odemwingie who was frozen out of West Brom’s team,before making substitute appearances,said that he would likely leave the midlands club in search of regular football.
“I thought things could be done easier, there was a new manager who came in and it didn’t go in my favour. I was moved out of my position. I made my name by scoring goals.”
“It looks like I will leave the Hawthorns. We are talking now – but where I’ll end up I don’t know,” Odemwingie said.
“I want playing time. Even if it is a team that is not so good, from the Championship – I will go” there as I just want to play.” (AllSports)
