Stoke striker Odemwingie open to Nigeria recall

Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie admits he's eyeing a late run for Nigeria's World Cup squad.

Odemwingie admits certain issues would need to be ironed out before he returns to the Nigeria fold, but he would jump at the chance to grace a Brazilian showpiece if given the opportunity.

He told The Sentinel: "I had a stressful 2013. Now I just take it week to week. I have a son who will be born in the summer and I have another already making me really happy.

"It's how I think now after last year, that things can always be worse. Today I already have more than I wanted three months ago.

"Everything else is a bonus, but every player would love to go to the World Cup.

"If things seem right for me and, most importantly, I am made to feel like I could help the team, then why not? We will see."
