Anyansi-Agwu backs Osaze for World Cup

A member of the Nigeria Football Federation Technical Committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu has openly thrown his weight behind the return of ostracized Super Eagles players but conceded that the coach has the final say.


With key members of Stephen Keshi’s squad failing to see regular action in Europe compared to those like Osaze Odemwingie, Ike Uche,  Anyansi says form should play a key part in call ups.

“They are Nigerians and the yardstick to invite a player to the national team is if the player is good and if he is doing well,” Anyansi, who doubles as chairman of Enyimba Football Club of Aba  said.
“From all indications these players are doing well.

“I don’t think there is anything wrong in bringing them back to help their country.
“Football is all about form, when a player is in form that is when you should bring him. If they continue to play this way I don’t see any reason why they should not be called to come back and help their fatherland.”
The Enyimba chairman however, said the decision was down to Keshi.

“It all depends on the coach.
“Fair play is the guiding principle of football and if they have shown remorse for whatever would have happened in the past, I don’t see any reason why the coach should not bring them back.”
Anyansi will be in the panel to meet with Keshi on April 22 when he presents his World Cup squad.
