World Cup: Odemwingie picks Russia over Nigeria

Ex-Super Eagles forward, Osaze Odemwingie, has selected Russia as his first choice ahead of Nigeria at the FIFA World Cup.

Odemwingie, who made over 60 appearances for the Africans, is born to a Russian mum and Nigerian dad.

The 36-year-old has obviously considered his maternity nation first who are hosting the quadrennial event.

Odemwingie, in a Twitter post on Wednesday morning, revealed he can’t wait to meet his mum at the Mundial.

The ex-Stoke City forward added emojis of five nations he will be rooting for, including  England, France and Belgium.

However, of all Russia came first.

Odemwingie was part of Nigeria’s squad to the last World Cup in Brazil and even scored against Bosnia.

He is currently without a club since leaving Indonesian side, Madura United in 2017.
