Emenike forged quite a reputation for himself in Turkey last two season, scoring freely for Karabukspor in the Turkish league campaign before earning a move to Sparktak Moscow of Russia, though he signed briefly for Turkish giant Fenerbahce before he was forcefully sold to Russia due to controversial issue in the club. No sooner had the Nigerian forward settled in the Russian City than he began to hit even more prolific form of recent, spurring a renaissance at a club that had fallen on hard times and giving their long-suffering fans renewed hope.

Though the former FC Cape town of South Africa is yet to produce is club prolific form for the Super Eagles of Nigeria. His hunger for goals still undoubted, Emenike is now looking to forward to the glory days of Nigeria team in his career as the Super Eagles failed to qualified for the 2012 Nations Cup.
Spartak Moscow striker Emmanuel Emenike has finally breaks silence after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the 2012 nations cup, in which many Nigeria soccer fans all over the world are not happy. And Emenike who recently hit an hat-trick for his club said he always fell like scoring goals in every games he played for the Super Eagles but admitted that he need some calmness to get his Eagles career on.

The former Karabuskpor of Turkey striker who scored over 30 goals in the Turkish league in two season reveal authoritatively that he regretted not converting his chances against Guinea in  Abuja as a result of what he described as ill-luck.

The 24-year-old forward made his Nigeria debut in February against Sierra Leone and scored his first goal for the Super Eagles in a 4-1 defeat of Argentina in a friendly in June.
Emenike revealed that he was willing to score for the Super Eagles against Guinea but all his effort was unfortunate and apologized to every soccer Nigerians that he will raise his games in the Nigeria colours for the 2013 Nations Cup.

“Personally, I was not happy with the situation of things, I know the implication of the lost. We are all affected because of our dream of playing at the Nations Cup. We tried our best to ensure that we deliver, not that we are not capable but at times luck matters in this game if you can agree with me. I think we are too desperate to deliver forgotten that we need jut a luck. 

“Of course Nigerians are not happy because of their expectations but we can always get better. We are all committed to serve our fatherland but I think it was a bit of ill-luck. We are sorry, and I am sorry as well. I think I am adapting now than ever, I will deliver in a matter of time.

“I was eager to score just like I use to do for my club whenever we needed a goal ahead. It painful that we could not qualify but I can only apologized to the fans who always give us their best. 
“Our failure was due to ill-luck, not that we did not play to score but we are unlucky to convert our chances which lead us to such non-qualification.

"That I missed chances does not mean I am not a better player, well, I understand everybody's feeling and that is human feeling anyway but I can even get better, I owe the game so much in the country's colour and I will gladly prove my worth.

“All of us wanted to win and go to the nations cup but I just believe that we will rebuild our image and make the country proud for the 2013 nations cup.
“We are owing Nigerians, I mean a debt of continental victory or World victory and I believe with their supports, we will make them proud.

Following the reports at some quarters that the Super Eagles team deliberately sabotaged the efforts of the former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia over too much indiscipline, especially the obvious attitude of Super Eagles star Peter Odemwingie who could have converted lots of chances against Guinea in Abuja, Emenike defended the former Locomotive striker that all the reports are lies insisting that Osaze was in high spirit to lift the team.

“Sabotage? It is a pure lie. Are we sabotaging Siasia or our career? At times, Nigerians need to be fair with us, football is not an easy game at all. Osaze motivated us a lot before the match and he really vowed to lift the team, he called for high spirit to beat Guinea and put smiles on Nigerians. “Osaze is not that kind of player at all, he never showed any negative attitude in the game, we all accepted the lost because we are a team of professionals but it will not be too good to be saying we kill off the game.” 

"I accepted that we make the country down but I think failure is part of success if you can agree with me, what we need now is to correct our mistakes and get the team going. "We will get better if Nigerians can have more patient. We failed but we can still be great.

"We owe the country but we must be supported and giving the necessary support again. 2013 nations cup is a sure bet for Nigeria, and we need to get ourselves on the right track. Nigerians should give us more time and supports.

However, Emenike who was awarded best player award of the month of October in the Russian league could not wait to play under his childhood hero, Daniel Amokachi as Super Eagles assistant coach to Chief coach, Stephen Keshi. 
“Of course I can work with any coach, working with Stephen Keshi and Daniel Amokachi will be as good as ever but it will be a dream come true for me playing under a player I admired now as a coach.
“People keep saying we have the same physique in terms of stamina and speed but I can’t wait to prove that under him and the Big Boss.

Worgu Ready For Shirts War

El-Merrikh of Sudan striker Stephen Worgu says he’s ready to fight for a place in the star studded Dream Team IV team after being named among the 15 pros by U-23 Chief coach Austin Eguavon for the London 2012 Olympics qualifiers in Morocco this month.

The former Eyimba of Aba star made several newspaper headlines both in Africa and Europe in 2008 when he emerged as CAF Champions league top scorer with 13 goals.
Worgu scored eight goals in four matches in Enyimba CAF campaign in 2008, averaging two goals a game. With eight goals in his pocket, he placed himself as the top scorer in the competition over leading strikers like Amr Zaki of the Egyptian Zamalek and El Shermeety of the Tunisian Etoile du Sahel.

It was a moment of joy for the Europe-bound striker after he was listed among the 15 pros for Dream team.
“Nigeria made me a better player to where I am today,” Worgu told 9jasoccerblog exclusively.

“I was happy the moment I discover I was invited because I have been looking for avenue to pay back my dues for Nigeria. I started my career in the country, and I was rated among the best striker in Africa in 2008, and I can still tell you that the quality is there for me to display if I get my chance at the end.”

“I am aware of the challenges in the team because of the players that started the journey but I don’t think that will stop my shirt if I can prove myself for the coach, and you know this is African game, it different from Europe and I am still in the continent, so I can have advantage to prove a point in the team but all will depend on the coach.

Due to his high talent in scoring and creating critical plays, the young striker has all the criteria a high-octane Nigeria u-23 team will need to emerge in Morocco.
“Of course, I’m playing in Africa does not mean I cannot challenge the foreign base stars in the team. “And remember I have played against most of these players in Africa and I know the task and strength to face them. It is definitely not going to be easy but we can prove them wrong.

Worgu also possesses the physical strength, fitness, and high proficiency that can easily pave a way for Dream Team in games against Morocco and Senegal.
In addition, Worgu has a set of developed skills in his repertoire that African youngsters don't have at the beginning of their career. This in effect will certainly stand as a great advantage for Eguavon team in the north Africa
