News Osaze Odemwingie regrets missing out on 2013 AFCON winning team

Peter Odemwingie has admitted missing Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations winning team in 2013 remains his only regret as he retires from football.

Former Super Eagles forward Osaze Odemwingie says he regretted missing out on the team that won the 2013 African cup of Nations in South Africa.

Odemwingie was reportedly omitted from the squad late Stephen Keshi after fallen out with officials of the team.

Nigeria went on to lift the tournament for the third time in South Africa without Odemwingie who was one of the most important players in the squad at the time.

While speaking with Super Eagles media team in a live Instagram interview, the former Stoke City striker said he regretted missing the opportunity to win a major title with his country.

“I dreamt of the team winning the trophy before it kicked off the tournament. But you know when you’re young and believe your decision is true, you just want to stick to it. Okay, now it’s past but it’s something I ‘d done differently.” he said.

Osaze later returned to the squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, he scored the only goal that earned the Super Eagles all the three points against Iran.

Osaze participated in four AFCON tournaments, two World Cups, and was also part of the U-23 squad for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games, where they won a silver medal.
