A former Nigeria international, Osaze Odemwingie, has made a promise to encourage his three children play for the country though they have two other choices just like him for any international careers.
Born in Tashkent, the capital of an independent Uzbekistan, Odemwingie whose mother is Russian could have played for either of the European countries but he opted to play for his father’s land Nigeria.
Now that he has hung his boot and his children also enjoying multi nationalities just like him, Odemwingie in a recent Instagram Live chat on the Super Eagles said he is encouraging his children to follow his footsteps.
“I will encourage them. Even though they have different roots; British, Russia, Nigeria, but I am encouraging them and preparing their minds towards representing Nigeria,” the former West Brom and Stoke City striker stated.
