Osaze dropped from Eagles

Samson Siasia has dropped Osaze Odemwingie from the Nigeria team to play a friendly match against Argentina on June 1 as well as an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia.

Osaze had a spat with Siasia shortly after the first leg game against Ethiopia where he posted on his twitter wondering why he should not have left to his club before the friendly game against Kenya which he did not feature in.

Even though Osaze later apologised, it is believed that he has been left out of the team for that reason.

Instead, Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi has been called up take part in the games

Yusuf Mohammed also makes a return to the team while Emmanuel Emenike who is based in Turkey is also recalled after injury in the friendly game against Sierra Leone.
