Stoke City’s Osaze Odemwingie is really excited to be included back into the Keshi’s list after his pro longed absence from the National team.
Osaze was included in the 30-man provisional World Cup list submitted yesterday by Keshi, This move suprised a lot of pundits. Osaze had been excluded from the Eagles camp after having a dispute with Big Boss Keshi due to not making AFCON 2013.
Osaze had taken to his twitter account immediately after hearing the news, to reveal his mood, he said: ‘Thanks for the congratulations. The return of the prodigal son Channels tv said? Anyhow una call am I am pleased to be back??.’’
Coach Keshi had revealed that Osaze apologized for his actions to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF and the technical crew and thats why he was recalled.
According to Keshi: ‘Odemwingie apologised to the NFF and myself so we have arrived at the conclusion that he has admitted that he erred we had to extend the olive branch to him.’’
Meanwhile controversy is staring up, as a FIFA licensed Football Agent Princely Nwafor has said that Osaze was pushed down Keshi’s throat by some big members of the NFF.
Nwafor said: ‘‘We all know it is a World Cup year and it is the dream of every player to be at the Mundial, what I really don’t know is the rationale behind recalling him when we know what he is capable of doing off the field of play.’’
