Odewingie, born by a Russian mother and a Nigerian father, said he will travel to Russia to meet his mum and support the Eagles.
The 36-year-old, who made his debut for Nigeria in 2002, however, said he will be doing some media work while supporting Gernot Rohr’s men and a host of other countries in Russia.
“Happy to be there for some media work. Rooting for #RUSSIA_2018,”.
Nigeria will face Croatia in their Group D 2018 World Cup opener on Saturday at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
Rohr’s men are in Group D of the tournament alongside Croatia, Iceland and Argentina.
