Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie says Nigeria can be proud of their World Cup campaign.

The Super Eagles' run was ended by France in their round of 16 clash.

Odemwingie said: "We go out in the second round but a lot of great teams were already at home watching the competition on TV.

"I think we can be proud of how we've done and for a long time we thought we could win.

"This is football, things can change quickly and at any moment. Unfortunately there was a little mistake when Vincent (Enyeama)... (pushed a cross to Pogba).

"But Vincent played a great game. But for him we might have been two or three down already. We knew he could save us and he did many times."
