I知 sorry, Obafemi begs Nigerians


Newcastle striker, Obafemi Martins, has apologised for missing Nigeria's 41 defeat by Ghana on February 6.

Newcastle striker, Obafemi Martins, has apologised for missing Nigeria's 41 defeat by Ghana on February 6.

Martins was released to play the game by the Magpies but he returned to Nigeria to look after his sick mother instead.

"I apologise to the Nigerian FA and the players because it was a very important game," he told BBC Sport. "But I also believe my mum was more important."

The Nigerian FA have threatened to punish Martins, possibly by suspending him from playing for the Super Eagles.
But Martins does not think that any further action would be taken against him.
He also said that he would be available to play for Nigeria in the future.

"When I am called upon I will play for them, because you have to respect the national team," he said.
"I do respect the Super Eagles a lot, so anytime they call, I will come and play."
