CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa has welcomed the possibility of Peter Osaze Odemwingie’s return to the Nigeria national team fold ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The jostling for places in the Super Eagles final list is heating up, with the Russia-based player pitted against Stoke City man by pundits.

The 21-year-old is, however, not shaken by the competition for places in the squad, but has not hidden his desire to earn a ticket to Brazil for the showpiece.

“It doesn’t scare me at all. Why will I be scared?

“We are all professionals striving for the best for the Super Eagles and our various clubs and at the end of the day the ultimate decision lies with the coach (Stephen Keshi).

“But anyone will be proud to represent his fatherland at the World Cup,” he added.

Musa has netted six times in 27 appearances for CSKA this season. He played a key role in the World Cup qualifiers, while Odemwingie was not considered because of his tense relationship with Keshi.
