Stoke City of England forward Osaze Odemwingie has hailed Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama as the man who propelled the team to the last 16 of the on-going FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Odemwingie also says the Super Eagles can return home with their heads held high after their World Cup dream ended against France.
The Stoke forward was key to the Super Eagles’ fortunes in Brasilia Monday, playing a major role in their best attacks but a 79th minute goal from Paul Pogba all but ended their campaign and a Joseph Yobo own goal made it 2-0 in injury time.
Odemwingie said: “We go out in the second round but a lot of great teams were already at home watching the competition on TV. I think we can be proud of how we’ve done and for a long time we thought we could win.
This is football, things can change quickly and at any moment. Unfortunately there was a little mistake when Vincent (Enyeama)… (pushed a cross to Pogba). But Vincent played a great game. But for him we might have been two or three down already. We knew he could save us and he did many times.”
