the turn of the striker who was the star player when Nigeria won the African nations cup in 2013,ending up as the top scorer of the competition.But it seems Emenike's retirement was not done with a clean and willing heart.According to his released statement,the Nigeria Super Eagles camp
was not a family camp.Emenike is definitely not happy about something.
Here is the strikers retirement statement below as announced on social media instagram..(another trend?)
“No more Eagles career! “After 5 great years,i am happy to announce that i have put a full stop to my national team career for the sake of national peace.it's a pleasure for me to have played for this great country.I never regretted it and i think its the best time to end it.Millions thanks to all the fans who have been supportive during the good and bad times.I am very proud of my performances,i am proud of my team mates and i am very proud of the nation called Nigeria.
My AFCON medal is a sign of great achievement,my AFCON top scorer award speaks a lot about my commitment and dedication to the team.Super Eagles is a camp,not a family house.And it shouldn't be a threat zone for any individual.
I have done according to our national anthem.All my dreams came true in the national team,i dreamt to win Nations cup for Nigeria after 20 years,i dreamt to play at the world cup as well as make a name for myself.In the space of 5 years,i got them.
I am a winner.For every disappointing fans,maybe due to my inability to re-establish my goals scoring instinct for Super Eagles,i will like to say i'm sorry but the ones i scored counted well for the team.As long as Nigeria remains,you and i will always rememebr the name Emenike.
Finally,i am ready to take a bow and continue supporting the team every time.
Up Eagles,God bless Nigeria."
