Mexyz: This is nt a matter of who is better,its a matter of who's causn trouble in d camp nd who's nt. Baloteli is a gud player,bt mancity is findn it hard to control him,so to me Osaze is arrogant nd he shud sit nd watch us do without him.

That guy remains the only dedicated and patriotic Nigerian in white and green on the field. Ge gives his best till the refree blows

guy dont talk like this by now you ought to be the captain, all hope is not lost. dont let age depress you. try and work hard focusing on your career.remember the older a wine gets the sweeter it becomes.BTW there is presently an attraction for old experienced players.

ayusco: I was following osaze's tweets as they were rolling in my first reaction was that of non suprise cos he is the kinda pesin who wears his heart on his sleeve. before I comment on his outburst I think keshi handled the matter badly. He is not just the coach but manager of these players as long as they are in his care. He could hav phoned him and man to man said u r not in my squad for reasons xyz then watever would hav been said woulda stayed btw dem so I think he messed up in that respect. Now to osazes tweets I am huge fan of his so it pains me to write this about him but his tweets came across as that of an arrogant spoilt brat. I think he shld take a good look at himself y its always him having issues with evry single coach. In his tweets he said lagerback didn't play him yet he was one of the first to hail his appointment. Amodu that played u you critized him publicly abt his team selection. With siasia frm wat osaze's tweeted I can only infere that you never gave him his due respect as ur coach hence Him also treating u like a junior player. Now with keshi again the issue of respect u can't b dictating to him who the captain or leaders in the team should be. Its by ur performance n influence that would determine who is a leader. Guys like oliseh yekini finidi earned the right to brag cos frankly speaking his performances for the NT were not earth shattering. Yes he did his bit but compared to martins nsofor even yakubu wey we no like he hasn't done as much as dem to be bragging about. Honestly I can c y keshi left him out cos he brings a lot of negative energy to the dressing room and evry coach worth his salt knws that goin into any competition u need a united front with minimum distraction. I think when the dust settles osaze will regret the tweets he posted
SPOT ON..U JUST NAILED IT. LEAVE OSAZE MAKE HE DEY RUN HIM MOUTH.WE NEED FRESH LEGS IN THE EAGLES CAMP AND I BELIEVE THE PLAYERS SELECTED FOR THIS TOURNAMENT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!!

thekoko007: its a pity some people on here can still open there mouth to abuse the young boy because he said out his mind and which also is the truth.people get intoxicated with power in this country and with any lil chance given to them they always want people to be down on there knees for them..if keshi could drop martins and also osaze i think is knowledge about the game should be question.cuz all the strikers hes going to the competition with are not tested except for ik kalu..others icannot staked my 1k on them because they have not proven to me that they are really ready to play for nigeria.the young boy has been going thru alot since he came into lime light..some people has never been comfortable with him.and is because they know he has seen it all than most of this people..young osaze..keep you cool and forget about the bad belle people.you are made and nobody can rubbish all you have achieved in football.
since they have not proven anything to you..wait till you see them play at the ANC before u conclude.who knew the 1994 eagles players before the conquered Africa? e b like say u dey wash Osaze pant o..i am very satisfied with this list and i am happy this Coach is giving the home based players a chance to prove themselves.

I remember one move Osaze made at the world cup where he ran with the ball down the left flank and instead of crossing to Martins to tap into a clear goal, he just blasted the ball anyhow into touch. He then raised his arms and started blaming Martins! I was like WTF??

Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, says he will not miss any player who did not make the team’s provisional list for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Keshi disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja, in reaction to the barrage of criticisms which have trailed his list of 32 invited players.

The list was for the final phase of camping in Faro, Portugal for the competition, scheduled to kick off on Jan. 19 in South Africa.

According to Keshi, the omission of the likes of Osaze Odemwingie and Taye Taiwo was not intentional, but for the good of the country.

“We don’t need Osaze right now; that is all. He is not a bad player and there is nothing personal about it.

“It is just that at this point in time, there are some players that were not called and we don’t have anything against them. We also did not invite Obafemi Martins, why are Nigerians not talking about him?

“These players are not the only Nigerians playing; this is what we want for now. All we want for now from Nigerians is to support the players that are there in prayers,” Keshi said.

The former Togo and Mali coach added that Martins was not in the list because he did not live up to expectation when he was given the opportunity to prove his worth in the new Eagles squad.

Keshi pointed out that he was more comfortable dealing with the players he was familiar with.

“Martins is a good player and has done so well for this country. However, I have some other players I have used before and I think I have confidence in them, not that I don’t have confidence in Martins, but his time will come.

“He is still a young man and is still playing,” Keshi said.

The Chairman, Nigeria Football Association, Aminu Maigari, told NAN that Keshi’s decision on the list was final.

Maigari said that the present board of the association had vowed not to meddle with Super Eagles affairs.

“Actually the duty of the NFA board is to regulate, we don’t impose players on the coaches. But I was able to attend part of the last segment of the technical committee meeting with the coaches themselves.

“At the meeting, I asked why Osaze was not invited and the committee said it had also asked similar question, but the coach gave his reasons and they were convinced.

“I was satisfied too, because I feel it is not my right to come and say the coach must bring back a particular player,” Maigari said.

NAN reports that the Super Eagles will depart Nigeria for Faro, Portugal on December 27 for the final phase of camping for the competition.

So even if a player does not fit into the coach's plan, he must be picked? i don't get this, when last did you watch osaze's game? even at West brom, he's not living up to expectation, check their last 5 games and let me know what you can come up with.

Osaze is a good player but not really doing well for now and i think the coach doesn't need him for now. we still have the world cup qualifiers at hand, he never even played throughout the nations cup qualifiers, if he's needed, he'd be called. no one should be made to think he's all in all.

These coaches they work hand in hand.
