All things being equal, out of favour Super Eagles players like
controversial Osaze Odemwingie, Taye Taiwo and Ikechukwu Uche may have
another chance to play for the national team ahead of the 2014 World
Cup scheduled for Brazil.
This follows Eagles' head coach, Stephen Keshi's disclosure to
supersport.com that he may extend invitation to the trio to the
national team ahead of the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
The "Big Boss" as Keshi is fondly called has now revealed that he has
not shut the door completely on any individual as he begins
preparations for the World Cup.
"Contrary to what some people think, I have not shut the door on
players like Osaze (Peter Odemwingie), Ike Uche and even Taiye Taiwo.
They are Nigerians and are eligible to play for the Super Eagles at
all times," Keshi said.
The gaffer however stated that they will only get a look in if they
"When I was in the national team, nobody had an automatic shirt. I was
the captain but I did not play in all the games.
"Everyday in training, it was war. We fought and sweated to show the
coaches that we were worthy of the shirt. That is the norm now as
well," he said.
