Lagos - Super Eagles psychologist, Robinson Okosun says he will be shocked if Peter Odemwingie decides to call time on his international career now, SuperSport reports.
Odemwingie last played for Nigeria on June 30, 2014 in a second round World Cup game against France which the Super Eagles lost the 0-2.
Speculations have been making the rounds that Odemwingie would toe the path of former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo who promptly announced his international retirement after the 2014 World Cup but Okosun says he will be shocked if that scenario plays out.

“I have heard the rumours (that Odemwingie is about to quit international football) and that is what they are; rumours.
“As far as I am concerned, he is still very relevant in the scheme of things and is one of the most technically gifted players this country has ever produced,” Okosun told supersport.com.
Odemwingie is currently sidelined from action with a knee injury but is expected back in action before the end of the current Barclays English Premier League campaign in May. For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
