Keshi: Odemwingie has apologised

25 March 2014, 15:31Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi says striker Peter Odemwingie has apologised to all relevant persons for his unruly attitude.

The Stoke City striker had gone on the social media to vent his anger at Keshi and leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation for being left out of the national team to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Odemwingie last played for Nigeria in a game against Rwanda in Kigali in 2012.

Keshi admitted that the former West Brom forward has tendered an apology to him and the federation.

"He's apologized to me, the federation, my coaches and others. We've been talking since last year, so no problems”, Keshi told journalists in Lagos on Tuesday.

"Osaze and (Ike) Uche have the same chance as every other player to be in the World Cup training camp. If they are invited, they would still have to prove during the camping that they deserve to be in the 23-man list".

The gaffer however did not say whether Odemwingie will be returning to the team ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
