Much vilified Super Eagles striker, Brown Ideye has said that he will shame his critics who have vilified him for some below-par showings for Nigeria.
The Dynamo Kiev striker came under the hammer after he struggled in front of goal at the recent FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.
”My passion to play and do well for my country is as strong as ever before, I don’t want to be bothered about the critics.
I am a professional and I know the best way to answer the critics is to concentrate and do well. I will definitely do that at the best time,” Ideye said.
Ideye has been invited for a crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Malawi on September 7 in Calabar and he is confident of a good outing.
”I am ready as ever to contribute my quota to see that we win the match. I am a team player, the success of the team comes first, but at times I get blamed for missing chances but I will get better,” Ideye promised.
“I am not ready to defend myself on the pages of newspaper, but the coaches know my contribution to the team and I will keep giving my best till things get better. I am always there to make Nigeria proud.”
