West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie has slammed Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi after he was ignored for the African Nations Cup.

The 31-year-old West Brom striker was controversially left out of the squad for the African Cup of Nations and vented his anger via social media.

Odemwingie, who would have been playing in his fifth African Cup tournament, tweeted: "On my non-inclusion to the Eagles list I am not surprised. Not surprised Keshi and NFF couldn't tell me themselves. No personality!

"We talk through press hahaha how come I am the only stubborn one but no ex-Eagles player was sent off from the team with respect?

"Keshi has no footballing reasons not to invite me but is not saying the truth. He is still in my plans he said haha coach u no dey my plans."
