City star is named in Nigeria squad

PETER ODEMWINGIE is to realise his dream of featuring in this summer’s World Cup Finals in Brazil after being confirmed in Nigeria’s 23-man squad.

The Stoke City striker had been away from the international scene for two years after a disagreement with coach Stephen Keshi.

However, after patching up his differences with Keshi he returned to the squad for a friendly against Scotland last week and made the final cut after the provisional 30-man squad was whittled down to the final 23.

Odemwingie could find himself going head-to-head with City teammate Asmir Begovic as Nigeria will face Bosnia Herzegovina during the group stage, as well as Argentina and Iran.

City will have four representatives at the finals in Brazil with Geoff Cameron and Wilson Palacios included in the USA and Honduras squads respectively.
