Odemwingie Hails Stoke Keeper After Chelsea Defeat

By Johnny Edward:

Stoke City’s Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie has hailed Jack Butland for his penalty heroics in the Potters’ 5-4 win over stuttering Chelsea in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup clash at the Britannia stadium.


Odemwingie, who came on for goalscorer Jonathan Walters in stoppage time of the encounter as Loic Remy struck an injury time equaliser to force extra time, wrote via his Twitter handle to applaud the England goalie for his efforts in the encounter.

Butland made four top class saves in the match. First he was called into action early in the first half to keep out a near-post effort from Costa and a shot from Oscar.

He also pulled off a wonderful save, stopping Bertrand Traore’s rising shot and Kennedy’s flick from going in all in the second half.

The England goalkeeper then proved the hero of the night as he made the decisive intervention in the shootout to deny Hazard and send Stoke through to the quarter-finals of the competition at the expense of Jose Mourinho and his struggling cup holders.

“Great effort from the team. JB is the man! Very happy for all of us Potters,” Odemwingie wrote via his Twitter handle.

  • What is the matter with Osaze Odemwingie? He was no where near the field not to talk of playing. Is he injured or just unfit? It was a well foght for victory although their style of play was too aggressive putting Costa in the hospital. Maybe their mind was made up that they will give Chelsea fire for fire, especially Costa who is always combative. Chelsea was not as they thought but it was too late to make plan B. I pity Chelsea but not Mourinho who brought this type of aggressive football into EPL. I really want him to resign but he will not because he knows what he is aiming at, 30-38 million pounds in payoff. How I wish the Russian will call his bluff and allow him to finish his contract in Chelsea. Enough is enough of all this tricks to get money. Pure 419.
