Sports I don't know if I will play for Nigeria again - Osaze Odemwingie

Osaze Odemwingie has revealed that he is seriously considering calling it quits with the Super Eagles national team.

The Stoke City striker who turns 33 later this month,noted that he might have played his last game for Nigeria adding that he is not sure of wearing the national team jersey again.

With Joseph Yobo announcing his retirement after Nigeria's elimination at the 2014 World Cup,Osaze could be the next player towing that path.

"Sometimes you just feel like you've come a circle and I don't know whether I'll play on for Nigeria," he told BBC Sport.

"I am committed to the country's cause. Right now I'm not too sure. It might be but it might not.

"You need to be honest with yourself and your country. There are few people I need to talk to because I can't be selfish.

"Nigeria has always meant everything to me. Despite everything I've been through, wearing the national colours has definitely been one the highlights of my career."

Though he has not made a final decision yet whether to hang up his boots,Odemwingie admitted that there are younger players coming through who can fill in his space.

"There are many young players coming through now and you can only pass on your experience.

"It's not a decision I will rush into but then, you need to make an honest one.

"But we shall see in the next couple of weeks."

Odemwingie scored Nigeria's solitary goal in the 1-0 victory over Bosnia in one of their group games at the World Cup.
