Odemwingie said: “We go out in the second round but a lot of great teams were already at home watching the competition on TV.”

“I think we can be proud of how we’ve done and for a long time we thought we could win.”

“This is football, things can change quickly and at any moment. Unfortunately there was a little mistake when Vincent (Enyeama)… (pushed a cross to Pogba).”

“But Vincent played a great game. But for him we might have been two or three down already. We knew he could save us and he did many times.”
