Eagles World Cup Watch

Sunday 16 March 2014

/ by Colin Udoh

Osaze Odemwingie: He continued to press for consideration for the World Cup chance after he netted a brace for Stoke City in a big 3-1 win over West Ham United. He scored in the 32nd and 79th minutes and was on from start to finish. He is back on track after a forgettable stint at Cardiff City and coach Stephen Keshi has said he may reconsider him for the World Cup, but he first has to talk with the outspoken striker.

Sunday Mba: He scored his second goal in the league for CA Bastia in a 1-0 win over Troyes in French second division. He played full game. It is left to be seen if his goals and game-time in the French lower league will be enough to get him into the 30-man provisional squad for Brazil 2014.

Efe Ambrose: He was on from start to finish as Celtic defeated hosts Kilmarnock 3-0. He is a certainty for the World Cup, but will he still be playing at right back?

Chinedu Obasi: He was a 46th minute substitute for Schalke 04 in a 2-1 win at Augsburg. He has an outside chance to be on the flight to Brazil as he last featured for the Eagles at the 2010 World Cup.

John Ogu: He was again left out of by Academica de Coimbra as they drew 1-1 at home with Sporting Braga. His lack of action could well count against him for Nigeria.

Michael Eneramo: He was on for the entire duration of the game as Karabukspor drew goalless with Galatasaray.

Sone Aluko: He was a 46th minute substitute for Hull City as they lost 2-0 at home to Manchester City. He could be a good option for the left side of attack for the Eagles as Nnamdi Oduamadi has yet to convince in that role.

Nnamdi Oduamadi: He was on for 90 minutes for Varese in a 3-0 home loss to Padova.

Victor Anichebe: He saw action for 89 minutes for West Brom in a vital 2-1 win at Swansea and was booked in the 26th minute.

Joseph Yobo: He played full game as Norwich City lost 4-2 to Southampton.

Kenneth Omeruo: He was a Trojan in the heart of Middlesbrough defence in a goalless draw with AFC Bournemouth in the English Championship. He looked sharp against Mexico and this has to be because he is now playing for ‘Boro.

Godfrey Oboabona: He saw action for the entire duration for Rizespor in a 2-2 draw with Besiktas. He returned to the squad after missing three games in a row.

Shola Ameobi: He was a 71st minute substitute for Newcastle United as they lost 1-0 at Fulham. He replaced Pappis Cisse. He has yet to score in the EPL this season but Keshi holds him in very high esteem.

Vincent Enyeama: He kept a clean sheet for Lille against Nantes as they played out a goalless draw.

Ahmed Musa: He was in action for champions CSKA Moscow in a 1-0 home win over Zenit St.Petersburg He played full game and his army club have reduced the gap with leaders Lokomotiv Moscow.

Austin Ejide: He was in goal in Israel for Hapoel Be'er Sheva as they lost 1-0 at Hapoel Ra'anana.

Ramon Azeez: He was on for the entire duration for Almeria as they lost 3-1 to Rayo Vallencano. Almeria are now battling for survival in La Liga.

Mikel Obi: He was an unused substitute for Chelsea as they lost 1-0 to Aston Villa. His limited game-time must be a big worry for the Eagles as he is one of the stars billed to shine in Brazil in June.

Juwon Oshaniwa: The left fullback was in action for the entire game for Israeli club Ashdod in a 1-1 draw at Hapoel Acre.
