Super Eagles’ chief Coach Stephen Keshi early this morning dropped the bomb-shell after he released a 30-man list as the Super Eagles begin preparations for the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil in June this year. Millions of soccer loving Nigerians however will be shocked to know that two of our most influential/key players have been dropped for the mundial. It can be recalled that Both Victor Moses and Mikel Obi played a huge and significant role in the 2013 African Nations Cup triumph. However former captain Joseph Yobo and Osaze Odemwingie are back in Keshi’s plan for the World Cup. In a statement signed by the Assistant Director (Media) of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), Ademola Olajire, released this morning, he said the 30 players are expected to report to the US based camp in May, where 23 players would eventually be selected for the World Cup. However, Mr Keshi tried to put fans’ minds at ease, defending his 30-man list: “When i dropped Odemwingie, Martins, I.k Uche, Yobo and other bi ...

Nigeria: Odemwingie Pushes for World Cup Place, Scores in Third Consecutive Match 30 MARCH 2014 Photo: Lefty Shivambu/Gallo Images-Stanbic Peter Odemwingie of Nigeria and Haminu Dramani of Ghana (file photo). Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie scored for the third game running as Stoke City continued their impressive form with a 1-0 win over Hull City in the Premier League yesterday. Odemwingie scored in the 62nd minute at the Britannia Stadium, seizing on a loose pass from Hull wing-back Ahmed Elmohamady before drilling home from the edge of the box. It was Stoke's third successive win, taking Mark Hughes's side to the 40-point mark synonymous with safety from relegation and leaving FA Cup semi-finalists Hull seven points above the bottom three in 14th place. It was not until shortly before half-time that Stoke first threatened, but Marko Arnautovic's tame low shot was comfortably saved by Harper. Harper had to save from Odemwingie early in the second half, before Begovic readjusted brilliantly to block a ...

Stoke striker Osaze Odemwingie is keeping his fingers crossed for a World Cup call as he attempts to put a difficult year behind him. The 32-year-old endured a testing 2013 after finding himself on the periphery at former club West Brom following the collapse of a proposed deadline-day move to QPR before a brief and unsuccessful spell at Cardiff. However, he appears to have revived his career since joining the Potters in January, and having repaired his relationship with Nigeria Coach Stephen Keshi, with whom he had a very public fall-out in 2012, he has not given up hope of a summer trip to Brazil. Odemwingie told the Stoke Sentinel: "I had a stressful 2013, now I just take it week to week. "I have a son who will be born in the summer and I have another already making me really happy. "It's how I think now after last year, that things can always be worse. Today I already have more than I wanted three months ago. "Everything else is a bonus, but every player would love to go the World Cup. "If things seem ...

The 32-year-old struck in the 22nd minute to tie the game at 1:1 after an early goal for Villa by Belgium ace Christian Benteke in the fifth minute. Stoke controlled much of the game afterwards, scoring thrice more to clinch all three points.Osaze had threatened moments before his goal when he dummied three players on the edge of the box before shooting at goal, but a deflection sent the ball over the bar.He got just reward soon after when, on the run inside the area, he controlled a Peter Crouch nod-down with his chest, before shooting under the goalkeeper.The former West Brom and Cardiff City star has now scored four goals in nine games since joining Stoke in January, including a brace in last week's league win over West Ham United.His goal scoring form has generated a huge debate in his homeland about his continued exclusion from t ...

What English Premier League award did the legendary Ivoirian striker Didier Drogba fail to win that Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie won three times? Handed out 182 times since 1994, the Player of the Month award goes to a player who is consistently on top of his game for the four weeks in a given month. Only four Africans have won the prize, with Ghana great Tony Yeboah the first African, and eighth player overall, to lift it in March 1995 while at Leeds United. He was to win a second in September of the same year. Legendary Nigerian playmaker Austin Jay Jay Okocha won the award once in November 2003 while at Bolton Wanderers. His compatriot Osaze won his first of a hat-trick of gongs in September 2010 while at West Brom. He picked the second in April 2011 and the third in February 2012. Chelsea star Demba Ba completes the quartet with his prize coming in December of 2011 while at Newcastle United.Despite leading Chelsea to three league titles, in addition to four FA Cups, two League Cups and the UEFA C ...

By Segun Oniyide Stephen Keshi Super Eagles coach admitted his facing selection Problems ahead of the World Cup, but added he is happy it is so, “It’s going to be very difficult because Nigeria is blessed with a lot of good players,” said Keshi. He said I just pray we pick the right players because even the new ones are pushing hard for a place. It’s a good development for us, but it would give us serious headache to pick the right squad for the country but that is what we want that we have options.” Keshi has kept faith with the core of the team who won a third Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa last year, but several others outside this group have been pushing for consideration recently.

9JA PLAYERS ABROAD (ENGLAND) Joseph Yobo was at his best as Norwich City handed visiting Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 defeat at Carrow Road. The Super Eagles skipper combined well with Sebastien Bassong in the Canaries' defence to thwart the attacking forays of Emmanuel Adebayor. Yobo has played three times this season for Norwich since his loan move from Fenerbahce. Osaze Odemwingie featured for 90 minutes as Stoke City lost 1-0 away to Manchester City. The Potters had fancied their chances of running away with a point before Yaya Toure’s goal gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side victory in the tough encounter. Osaze has played four games in the EPL this season with a goal to show for it. Victor Moses was a second half substitute as Liverpool survived Swansea scare in a seven goal thriller at Anfield Road. The Super Eagles star came on for Daniel Sturridge in the 79th minute and his contribution ensured that the Reds grabbed victory at home. The game was his 14th game of the season since he joined from Chelsea. ...

Odemwingie joins Stoke City Former West Brom player, Osaze Odemwingie on Tuesday signed an eighteen month contract with struggling premier league side, Stoke City from Cardiff City. The forgotten Super Eagles striker failed to tie a permanent play in Cardiff, where he managed to score two goals in 17 matches, following his £2m switch from West Brom. “We’re delighted to have signed Peter. Things haven’t perhaps gone as well for him at Cardiff as he would have hoped and he’s really keen to start afresh with us,” Stoke manager Mark Hughes told club website. Vanguard News
Osaze agrees swap deal with Stoke Stoke have reached an agreement with Cardiff over a move for Osaze Odemwingie, which will see Kenwyne Jones head to south Wales in a player-exchange transfer. The Potters have announced that the deal is subject to both strikers passing medicals and agreeing personal terms. Stoke said on their website that they hoped to conclude their move for Odemwingie over the weekend. Speaking after his side’s 1-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory at Bolton, Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “There is potentially a deal to be done, with Peter going to Stoke and Kenwyne coming to us. “Obviously, you cannot confirm anything until papers are signed and medicals are done, but we are quite a long way down that road. “I can’t say anything about any other players, but I know Stoke have brought out a statement so I can confirm what they have said.” Nigeria international Odemwingie only joined Cardiff in September, moving from West Brom for a fee believed to be in excess of £2milli ...

Former Super Eagles Captain, Sunday Oliseh has advised football stakeholders in the country to allow Eagles handler, Stephen Keshi to concentrate on leading the team to a successful outing in the 2014 World Cup holding in Brazil in June. Keshi’s preparations for the World Cup became a topical issue since the draws were made pitching Nigeria against highly rated Argentina while the other two countries in Group F included Bosnia Herzegovinian and Iran. Nigerian football fans have also called for the return of some players such as Osaze Odemwingie, Victor Anichebe, Lukman Haruna and others to encourage competition for shirts in the team. But Oliseh believes Keshi has started well for the 2014 Mundial and should be allowed to tinker the team without distractions from any quarter.
The ongoing 2013/14 football season has not been too rewarding, yet, for Nigerian strikers plying their trade in the tough English Premier League, as they have been experiencing goals drought. A check on Nigerian players in the EPL reveal that aside John Mikel Obi who is a midfielder with Chelsea, the remaining five comprising of the Ameobi brothers - Shola and Sammy with Newcastle, Cardiff City’s Osaze Odemwingie, Victor Anichebe of West Bromwich Albion and Victor Moses of Liverpool are attackers. As things stand, almost all of the above-listed forwards have one thing in common. Aside Sammy Ameobi who is yet to score a goal in the 5 games he has played this season, the rest all have just ONE goal to their credit in numerous games they have featured for their respective clubs. In other words, the combined goalscoring efforts of Ameobi (in 10 games), Odemwingie (in 12 games), Anichebe (in 10 games) and Moses (in 11 games) have fetched a cumulative of FOUR goals only (in 43 matches combined) so far in the ...

FOOTBALL 411: Super Eagles manager, Stephen Keshi has said his side will not accommodate new players without an enhanced value in the World Cup squad. Lately the names of captain, Joseph Yobo, Ikechukwu Uche, Taiye Taiwo, Osaze Odemwingie, among several others have been mentioned as possible comeback to the Super Eagles. Keshi said it amounts to wishful thinking for anybody to believe he will bring back a player that is not better than the ones in his fold at the moment. “It will be senseless to invite any new player who has nothing new or value higher to add to what I’ve at present in camp.
Odemwingie Listed in Westbrom’s All Time Top 10 post-war strikers Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie has been listed in Westbromwich Albion’s all time post war strikers. Odemwingie who joined West Brom from the Russian club Locomotiv Moscow for £2million in 2010 scored 30 goals in 67 League starts for the Baggies, netting in derby games against Aston Villa, Chelsea and a remarkble hat-trick against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux. Also, the former Lille forward scored vital goals in games against Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal during his time with Albion to help the Baggies survive the drop in the 2010-11 campaign. Other players lised include;Jeff Astle (1964-1974), Cyrille Regis (1977-1984),Ronnie Allen (1950-1961),Bob Taylor (1992-1998, 2000-2003),Kevin Phillips (2006-2008) Romelu Lukaku (2012-2013),Derek Kevan (1953-1963),Ally Brown (1971-1983),Lee Hughes (1997-2001, 2002-2004) and Peter Odemwingie (2010-2013).

Players like Brown Ideye and Ahmed Musa are important cogs in the reigning African champions’ team but the inconsistency in their recent display leaves room for marked improvement or even replacements if/when available. Also, John Ogu, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Sunday Mba, Nosa Igiebor, Victor Obinna and Nnamdi Oduamadi have shown glimpses of brilliance, but a recall to the team for Joseph Yobo, Kalu Uche, Ikechukwu Uche, Reuben Gabriel, Osaze Odemwingie & Obafemi Martins should provide stiff competition. The national team is still very much a work in progress as we saw against the Ethiopians. The Eagles found it difficult to kill off the game in the second half with the attacking quartet of Emenike, Ideye, Musa and Moses struggling to get the better of the opposing defence with their final pass always lacking a cutting

On a Sporting Note, Nigeria qualification to the World Cup is very much commendable because the boys that prosecuted the qualifiers are young, without much experience yet Stephen Kechi brought out the best in them. For us to perform better in the World Cup should be our next focus. Building bridges with offended players & raising the morale of the yet to be assembled squard is of utmost importance, if we must leave our footprint in Brazil 2014. In this vein, players like Osaze Odemwingie, Victor Anichebe, Ike Uche & Captain Joseph Yobo should be invited back to the Super Eagles to fight for a shirt & if their fitness is in shape, they should make the final team selection, having in mind that experience counts.

It was a weekend many of the Nigerian players in Europe had little to celebrate as some of them failed to get any action for their sides, while the others had their teams beaten. Many of them had sad tales to tell except for Mikel Obi who had every reason to celebrate after scoring his first league goal in eight seasons for Chelsea on Saturday. Mikel made it 2-0 over Fulham, momentarily lifting the London club to the top of the English Premier League table. Osaze Odemwingie was a 65th minute substitute for Cardiff City in their loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. It was the first time the former West Brom striker would be listed in the squad since joining them in the summer transfer window. Dundee United's Olalekan Kudus Oyenuga was an unused substitute for the Scottish giants as they thrashed visiting Motherwell 2-1 at the Tannadice Park on Sunday.

Yes, I agree the Eagles were woeful if you judged by the results they got at the Confed Cup. One win (against a spineless Tahiti) and two losses to Uruguay and Spain is not a cause for cheer. However, when you look beyond the results and critically analyse the performances against Spain and Uruguay then you may begin to understand how our boys shed blood to ensure we were not humiliated.

A LITTLE ADVICE FOR Super Eagles HEAD COACH,Stephen Keshi!!! In as much as I appreciate the good work that Keshi has started, I hope he will not refuse to learn from the mistake (i.e not going to the tournament with experienced professional attackers) he made at the Confederation cup tournament. Professional attackers like Obafemi Martins, Kalu Uche, Osaze Odemwingie, Joel Obi etc are fully fit and active. Kalu Uche (2nd best goal scorer in turkish league) has presently scored 19 goals in 22 club matches. Is Kalu Uche or Obafemi Martins not better than Gambo Mohammed, John Ogu, Babatunde? Will Obafemi Martins waste more than eight (8) clear goal scoring chances that Brown Ideye had against Tahiti, Uruguay and Spain? Keshi,I hope you saw the quality of the substitutes from Spain? Spain brought in Fernando Torress (50 million pounds) and you brought in Gambo Mohammed (a Kano pillars 2nd team player) Spain brought in David Villa (a Barcelona world star) and Keshi brought in John Ogu. Why will you field play ...

Odemwingie was brought in, in the 76th minute, for Mark Rosenberg in the fixture played at the Etihad Stadium. The former Lokomotiv Moscow striker showed some flashes of brilliance in his few minutes on the pitch but was unable to help his side get the leveler after Edin Dzeko had shot the host ahead in the first half.

With mixed reactions still trailing the 15-man list of professional players penned down for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Kenya, Former Super Eagles Skipper Nwankwo Kanu says the non- invitation of the likes of Taiye Taiwo,Osaze Odemwingie, and Obinna Nsofor by Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi does not mean they are no longer needed in the National team rather it shows that the country is blessed with talents. Meanwhile, former international and technical committee member of the Nigeria Football Federation Garba Lawal has bared his mind on the list stating that the coach simply selected players that suit his immediate task. Deliberation: If the coaching crew had an opportunity to make two changes to the team, give us names you would want the coaches to strike out, those you want as replacement and why?

But the surprise package in the team is Shooting Stars of Ibadan goaltender, Dele Ajiboye, who started with the U-17 and has been with the Flying Eagles, U23s and now the Super Eagles. In the meantime, Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu has stated that Ajiboye was invited so he can show the technical crew what he has to offer.

It looks like out-of-favor Super Eagles striker, Osaze Odemwingie, is more on the social media network than on the field of lately.
Osaze Odemwingie demonstrated why he was a cult hero in the French top flight with a sublime performance, scoring four goals for the Super Eagles at the Tunisia 2004 Africa Cup of Nations. Despite bursting onto international scene at the right age (23), Osaze remained the player he was at Bendel Insurance (2000-2002)  and Belgian club La Louviere (2002 -2004) – very shy and reserved. At  the Egypt 2006 finals,  where the striker cemented his place in the Eagles,  he was celebrated for his amazing dribbling   technique, quick passing, shooting, and movement off the ball.   His performance for  French side Lille, a club he joined from La Louviere a year after the Egypt 2006 finals,  and country did not go unnoticed in Europe as the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and AC Milan  reportedly  sought his signature. However, Russian giants Lokomotiv Moscow    moved to the front of the queue for the forward  to sign him for a reported $14m four-year deal  on July ...
The irony of seeing Victor Moses and Osaze Odemwingie on a Pepsi Billboard together. We know who they'll spend more money on henceforth.
Hello folks! Still on the AFCON things, what would you do right now if you were Osaze Odemwingie? (From what I heard, he had a spat with...well everyone it seems.) Would you stick to your guns, apologize or just ignore all goings on around you and keep on keeping on?
Stephen Keshi dropped osaze Odemwingie and still won the cup...Drop some useless big people in your life too and see how good u'll do.

Ian Holloway has played down talk that West Brom striker Osaze Odemwingie is set for a move to Crystal Palace . Odemwingie drove to Loftus Road on deadline day in the hope of a move to QPR, an act described by Steve Clarke as ‘total lunacy’, but the two clubs were unable to agree terms.
The Super Eagls, Keshi and Oliseh made me proud yesterday. They renewed my unfailing faith in the divine destiny of this great nation despite the cycle of bad leadership. Super Eagles played with commitment, zeal and unity of purpose and the result is there for everyone to see. Everyone worked and covered for the other. Nobody was ground standing or playing flamboyant football at the expense of the team. Selfishness and self promotion was relegated to the background. Keshi displayed vision and determination, self assurance and took risk by refusing to take established stars like Obafemi Martins and Osaze Odemwingie to the Nations Cup despite the "noise" from football addicted Nigerian "experts". Only a LEADER can take such hard and unpopular decision for the larger interest of his team/nation. Was extremely proud watching post match interview and seeing Keshi answering questions in both English and French without the aid of interpreter. Oliseh has been wonderful as pundit. He was unfazed sitting beside th ...
Here Comes the New Goal Marchant of Super Eagles. His Name is Emmanuel Emenike He is a Nigerian of Igbo extraction, born at the Coastal town of Otuocha. He plays for a Spartak Moscow in Russian Premier League. He is relatively talented Star whose hardworking & determination to succeed has made him played his football Careers in South Africa, Turkey and now Russia. In spite of playing in not too fancy and popular league, the Coach who believed in Merit against Quota System made him a member of the Super Eagles ahead of Popular but faded established Stars such as Obafemi Martin, Aiyegbemi Yakubu, Osaze Odemwingie and many others. And he has since justify the trust by scoring goals after goals in the tournament. He and his team mates have made Nigeria Proud. In Football, We are One nation, one people. Stop the discrimination and stay with merit. For the good of Nigeria Football! SAY NO TO QUOTA SYSTEM!
••NFF fully behind *Odemwingie The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed empathy and support for Nigeria international player, Osaze Odemwingie, in his present situation with his English Premiership club, West Bromwich Albion. NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, said in Johannesburg on Friday that the Federation was fully behind the player and would do everything to comfort him in the circumstances. “Osaze Odemwingie is our international player and at every point in time, we must be seen to care for the interest and welfare of our international players. He is in a situation with his club, West Brom, at this period but we are fully behind him and we want him to know that we wish him well and we comfort him. “It is a very odd circumstance for a player to understand that a transfer was going to take place, only for this not to happen again and then the player is being blamed for the incident,” said Maigari. Odemwingie, who played for Nigeria at the 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010 Africa Cup of Natio ...
The unfortunate injury to Austin Ejide restored Vincent Enyeama to number one position. Coach Stephen Keshi argues that he can't afford to use a keeper who's not playing regularly as number one. Amazing! Apart from the awful last season in Lille enyeama has kept more games in Israel this season than Ejide. So, how valid is Keshi's assertion. Nelspruit is about 700 metres above sea level, Rustenburg is about 1, 200 above sea level yet we went to Faro, 7 metres at sea level to camp. Mediterenean climate isn't same as cape climate in South Africa. How would they cope with breath levels. We are rebuilding! We've been doing that since 2002, 10 years, without success. But Keshi had said merit and form will form the bedrock of his team selection. He takes 17 fresh men, eight of them as starters to South Africa and then expects result. He excludes Nigeria's hottest players in Europe, Osaze Odemwingie and Obafemi Martins, I think not for football reasons. Hope it's not the case of the hand of Esau and the voice of ...

Nobody should be deceived, Nigeria local coaches are all business men as Super Éagles coaches, Osaze Odemwingie, Martins, Uche Kalu (IK Uche brother) were all dropped for the inexperienced home base that Keshi never watched their matches, just to sell them after the competition with the profiles of national team players. The madness for money and self centeredness will continue to hunt them. From Amodu Shuaib through Eguavoen to Keshi are all business men in Super Eagles coach tracksuits...but wit a local coach, 3 passes can not be put together. We should learn to judge our local coaches with the level of our dead league. God bless Nigeria. - Teddy Victor's wall

Newcastle to break bank for Osaze…May replace Ba Newcastle’s boss, Alan Pardew, is reported to be interested in Nigerian international, Peter Odemwingie, in case Demba Ba leaves this month. According to The Sun(London), Newcastle wants Odemwingie to replace Senegalese striker, Ba, who has sparked off interest from a number of clubs including Chelsea. It’s not the first time Newcastle has been linked with the striker, but at 31, he’s the same age as compatriot, Shola Ameobi, and Peter hardly fits the profile of players Newcastle would want to sign in January. The Sun reported that talks were ongoing with West Brom about Osaze as it seems they may be willing to sell the Nigerian star, who joined West Brom in 2010 from Russian club, Lokomotiv Moscow, and before that he played at Lille with both Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy. Odemwinge has a decent record at West Brom having appeared 73 times for them with 30 goals, and this season, while he’s only appeared nine times, he’s still managed to sco ...

R-E-V-E-A-L-E-D: Why Osaze Was Dropped! Facts may have emerged on why Osaze Odemwingie was excluded from the Super Eagles squad for the 2013 AFCON, by coach Keshi. According to Paul Bassey, a columnist with Vanguard Newspaper, who was present at the NFA Technical Committee meeting where Keshi and his assistants defended the Nation’s Cup list, the Eagles’ coaches were skeptical about a player who withdrew from National duty just because he was substituted during a match at the last World Cup. According to Bassey, Keshi was querried by the technical committee on the omission of Martins, Taiwo and Osaze from the list. “Members of the Technical Committee were unanimous that Nigeria needed to go to South Africa with the best legs there are, and presently Osaze was one of the best. “But by the time Keshi and his assistants finished explaining the reasons for his (Osaze)omission, there was nothing to fault him. Post events have certainly proven the coach right. Much as I do not want to drag us back, the ...

Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi has dropped a bombshell by revealing Osaze Odemwingie has proposed himself as team skipper. Keshi told a stunned Nigeria Football Federation technical committee that the West Bromwich Albion striker has put himself forward to be the Eagles skipper. “He told them that he wants to be captain as he considers himself one of the most senior players in the current squad,” an official revealed. “But how he has behaved in the national team over the years has really run counter to his ambition to be the leader of this team. You can only lead by example.” The 31-year-old Osaze made his Eagles debut in 2002, but it was not until the 2004 Nations Cup that he established himself in the national team. Goalkeepers Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide as well as defender and present skipper Joseph Yobo are more senior players than Osaze in the Eagles.

The Baggies striker was sent-off for reacting angrily to a challenge by Sascha Riether and lashing out at the Cottagers full-back in the 38th minute with his side 1-0 down. But he says he will learn from the experience and is determined to make amends for his actions once he has served a three-game ban against Reading and Villa in the league and Liverpool in the Capital One Cup. “I do feel like I’ve let myself down,” said Odemwingie. “It doesn’t happen often and it really feels very bad. “I also let my team-mates, the club and fans down. “I’m sorry to all those fans who travelled down that I handed Fulham a one-man advantage, which is a big advantage in the Premier League. “I’m very disappointed and I’ve said sorry to the boys and the staff. “It’s my fault and I regret the outcome of losing my ...
