Former Udinese and Super Eagles star escape death in car crash

Share this story:

Former Super Eagles Midfielder Christian Obodo survived a ghastly auto accident along Ozoro road in Delta State, over the weekend. 

Obodo is regarded by many as one of the most skillful and talented midfielders to play for the Super Eagles since the 1994 era.

In 2012, the former Udinese man was reportedly kidnapped by gunmen near Warri, Delta State. He was rescued the next day in nearby Isoko by men of the Nigerian police force.

Obodo made six appearances out of ten in the 2006 World Cup qualification series, scoring a goal. At the 2006 African Cup of Nations, he featured in four of Nigeria’s six games, scoring in the 2–0 win over Zimbabwe.

Obodo last played for the Super Eagles in 2008.
