Nigerians React As Two-Time World Cupper Odemwinge Calls Time On Football Career
Former Nigeria international Osaze Odemwingie has announced his retirement from active football at the grand age of 37.

The striker made his decision to hang up his boots public at the UEFA Equal Game Conference at Wembley on Wednesday, and this has drawn reactions from Nigerians who held him dear during his playing days.

Osaze represented Nigeria at four AFCON tournaments and two World Cups, scoring 10 goals in 63 appearances for the Super Eagles since debuting in 2002.

English sides Stoke City, West Brom, Cardiff City and Rotherham United are some of the clubs he turned out for during his stint in the English Football League.
