Nations Cup: Iroha begs for Odemwingie

Former Super Eagles defender Ben Iroha has sensationally ask for the recall of erring West Brom forward Osaze Odemwingie to the Super Eagles camp ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Iroha suggested that since Odemwingie have done the needful to apologize for his twitter outburst and the fact that invited players like Millwall’s Danny Shittu and Shola Ameobi are set to forfeit their slots then Odemwingie can be considered for a place.

“Osaze is my boy, he has served this country with passion but I don’t like the way he reacted on twitter, thank God he has apologized for his mistake.

“If the NFF, Keshi and his teammates have forgiven him I will say they should bring him back to the team since Danny Shittu and Shola Ameobi might not be coming,” Iroha opined.

Odemwingie formerly considered a top favourite was among the big names dropped from the list of 32 players in the run to South Africa 2013.

That nonetheless, Coach Stephen Keshi says he still has Odemwingie who is linked with a move to Newcastle in his future plans pointing out that he has no plans to invite any new player to his team for now.
