Osaze Odemwingie, Vincent Enyeama Also Quit Super Eagles?

Following Nigeria's 0-2 defeat to France, Super Eagles' goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama and Super Eagles' forward, Peter Odemwingie, have reportedly quit the team.

This is coming a day after Super Eagles' coach, Stephen Keshi and the team's captain, Joseph Yobo quit the national team.


Osaze in an interview at the Mix Zone made the announcement that he has quit the team saying:


"I am confident I should go now, and I can say I have no bad feelings. I am happy we played well but lost. I am not too sure now whether to wish we played badly and win or the other way round. Whatever the case, I am happy I am leaving the team in the hands of capable younger players. They should be held together for a long time.

"For me, I am not getting younger, I need to get home and evaluate what plans I have for the future. That is why I was not conclusive. But to tell you, I will like to face club action, ‘I still have three years left in my contract. I will like to stick with the club. I am not discussing any moves. I am happy at my club.

"I have had a fulfilled time with the national team. I have enjoyed every moment of it. I need to quit now. The up and coming players in the team are good. They need all the chance. I just have to go," he added.
