I Sang National Anthem For 10-Years To Be Treated Like This – Osaze Blasts Off On Twitter


Super Eagles prolific forward, Peter Osaze Odemwingie has taken to Twitter to pour out his heart on his recent exclusion from the squad that will prosecute the nation’s games at next year’s Orange African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The West Brom striker who is capped 55 times with 9 goals for Nigeria, is unhappy at his exclusion and has decided to clear the air ‘for the fans’ so that ‘they don’t think I don’t care or too proud.’

Not one to shy away from controversy especially when it comes to the way football is being run in the country, Osaze, 31, once again showed his passion for the game that has brought him fame as he raised very salient issues that might just give a hint to the real reasons behind his exclusion from coach Stephen Keshi’s 32-man squad list as well as other run-ins he has had in the past with football administrators in the country.

  1. My friend @osaze go and siddon jor! Who do you think you are?! Others were called to camp they came and won the slot now you want to chance them abi? Why didn’t you show up to fight for your shirt like others?? Look just go and bury your head somewhere bcos no man is greater than Nigeria. Others are hungry for the opportunity to play for nija

  2. don’t knw why you people talk with sentiments,Osaze is past his best nd has no respect at all for his country.Romario was the best player in the qualifiers for brazil in 2002 and yet he wasn’t at the world cup.Osaze can’t even make his team’s 1st eleven.Time to bring in young blood and players who are willing to play for the shirt,rather than an old leg dat has 55 caps 9 goals.

  3. @oyedijo were are the people that can play more than Osaze? Well i saw u commentd 18months ago don’t thing you can still hold such view about him now.lol don’t conclude some1’s life like that cos u don’t know 2morow.
