Brown Ideye Overwhelmed With EmotionNigeria striker Brown Ideye in an interview with the official website of Dynamo Kiev says he is delighted to win the African Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles.

'' I was overwhelmed with emotion. I am very happy because this is my first trophy with Nigeria. Anyway, this is the first major trophy for me in my entire football career, from the time I first put on my boots and started to play football. Now I am happy and I thank God for that!'' Ideye told

Brown Ideye's wife could have been in South Africa cheering the team but her busy schedule prevented her from doing that.

''Initially she was to come. But at the last moment she had a lot of important things to do in Nigeria. So she had to return to the country,'' the attacker revealed.

Though they were not summoned to the championship by coach Stephen Keshi, fellow Kievites Taye Taiwo and Lukman Haruna were constantly in touch with Ideye.

''I have already talked to them. They are really happy, like all Nigerians! I really appreciate the fact that they keep calling me, worried about me.They are very cool guys, great friends, and I'm sorry that they can not share my happiness of victory right here, in the camp of the national team,'' he concluded.
