- Brown Ideye was part of the Nigerian team that won AFCON 2013
- He also played a key role in helping the Super Eagles qualify for the World Cup in 2014
- Ideye who was dropped from the team that went to the World Cup has vowed to expose corruption in Nigerian football
In the wake of emerging allegations as regards corruption in the Nigerian football circle, Super Eagles star Brown Ideye has vowed to expose the level of the trend soon.
The Aris Thessaloniki of Greek forward was instrumental in the Nigerian team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nationa under the tutelage of the now late Stephen Keshi.
Ideye was also crucial for Nigeria during the qualification matches for the 2014 Fifa World Cup, but he was dropped from the final list that made the tournament.
Unknown players including Michael Uchebo and Uche Nwofor were named in the team that went to the World Cup in Brazil by Stephen Keshi.
“Before I retire, I will write a book and pour everything out. Not going to that World Cup, God used Keshi to sideline me for the West Bromich Albion job.
This is coming barely five days that former Super Eagles forward Chinedu Obasi has claimed that his refusal to pay bribe was responsible for his omission to the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
In an Instagram chat with Kelechi Benard, the 33-year-old forward who played for Bundesliga giants Schalke as at that time lamented the ordeal, saying he was sad.
Although he was not part of the team that played the World Cup qualifiers as at that time, Obasi stated that he was offered a chance to be part of the party to Brazil if he paid bribe.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Godfrey Oboabona has however discredited Chinedu Obasi's claims that they were asked to pay a certain amount of money before making the team to Brazil in 2014 World Cup.
The former Sunshine Stars of Akure centre back was among the players who made late Stephen Keshi's list to the FIFA World Cup back then.
He claims playing in the Nigeria Professional Football League would not have afforded him the chance to pay such amount if they were truly asked for money by the coach.
It would be recalled that the former Schalke 04 attacker granted an interview saying he was dropped from the squad for the championship because he refused to pay his way through.
