Nigeria has no reason to fear any team, says Odemwingie

The Super Eagles scraped through qualification for the 2010 World Cup, leading many to question their ability to mix it with the best nations in the continent.

But Odemwingie says the Eagles should not be judged by their qualifying series form, which he attributed to so many things.

“A brilliant outing at the World Cup will depend largely on what happens between now and then,” he said. “Angola provides us with a platform to fix the problems affecting us and that should help mould us into a team that will be able to represent Nigeria effectively.

“If we are able to put all these things together, I think we can win the Nations Cup then of course Nigerians will be happy,” he told BBC.COM

Osaze is currently in the country to attend the Eagles’ dinner with the Federal Government, which holds today at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

Before leaving for Abuja, he took time off his schedule to lend a helping hand to grassroots kids in Okota, Lagos State.

The former Insurance of Benin star explained his work with the kids as a way of helping the children realize their dreams, noting that he was once in their position.

“It takes me back to my days when I was younger. I am not forgetting where I started from. I made an effort, which I am happy will please a lot of people.

“So, I am happy to have the chance to do that,” said the former La Louviere of Belgium star.
