Odemwingie considers Nigeria future

08 July 2014, 10:48

Lagos - Peter Odemwingie admits he is unsure of whether or not he will represent Nigeria again following their early exit from the 2014 World Cup.

The Stoke City forward was part of the Super Eagles outfit that progressed through the group stages in Brazil, with Odemwingie securing his side's only win at the tournament as his goal against Bosnia-Herzegovina proved decisive in the 1-0 win.

Stephen Keshi's men were unable to find a way past France in the last-16, though, as they went down 2-0, and 'Osaze', as he is affectionately known in Nigeria, admits his career as an international footballer may just be over.

"Sometimes you just feel like you've come a circle and I don't know whether I'll play on for Nigeria," he told BBC Sport.

"I am committed to the country's cause. Right now I'm not too sure. It might be but it might not. "You need to be honest with yourself and your country. There are few people I need to talk to because I can't be selfish.

"Nigeria has always meant everything to me. Despite everything I've been through, wearing the national colours has definitely been one the highlights of my career."
