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.

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
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.For
