|Rejected Obafemi Martins Backs Keshi And Eagles For Glory by gbosaa(m): 7:33pm On Dec 26, 2012|
Axed Levante striker Obafemi Martins has tipped Nigeria to win the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
The 28-year-old Martins was one of several top stars axed by coach Stephen Keshi from a provisional 32-man squad.
‘Obagoal’ has said he is not disappointed he has been left out of the Nigeria squad to the AFCON next month despite his goals in the Spanish La Liga.
He therefore said he believes the Eagles are good enough to land a third Nations Cup trophy in South Africa.
"They have a team who are capable of winning the Nations Cup without me. I wish them all the best in South Africa," said Martins when he visited a hospital in Lagos on behalf of his foundation on Tuesday.
“I will now enjoy my holidays and then return to Spain to focus with my club.”
He made a donation of five million Naira (about $31,000) to a Lagos maternity hospital to help offset the bills of mothers who could not afford to do so.
Martins has featured in three AFCONS, in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
The former Newcastle and Inter Milan striker has been scored six goals in 13 League matches with Levante, who are now sixth on the La Liga table.

That's the spirit Martins. Osaze should learn from him instead of complaining.
