Odemwingie excited to make first start in one year

23 September 2015, 13:46

London - Nigeria striker Peter Osaze Odemwingie is delighted to have started his first game in more than a year after he was lined up for Stoke City's 1-0 Capital One Cup win over Fulham on Tuesday.

The 34-year old forward has suffered with injuries over the last year, and has struggled to stay fit for the Potters and after another lengthy time out of action, made the starting eleven for Stoke as they beat Fulham, and he has been speaking about the game.

"First start for me in over a year. Hope I stay fit and have many more. Solid team performance today and we are through to the next round," he tweeted after the game.

Peter Crouch scored what proved to be Stoke's only second win of the season - both in the Capital One Cup - and offered some glimmer of hope for the club after making a poor start to the English Premier League season.

Osaze, despite starting for Stoke, had a minimal impact on the game as the Potters struggled to beat the Championship side.

He was replaced after 84 minutes by Swiss international and former Bayern Munich midfielder, Xerdan Shaqiri.
