Ogbunigwe was not done with the Super Eagles yet as his brace against Ethiopia in a 2014 World Cup qualifiers match on October 13, 2013, proved pivotal towards Nigeria’s qualification for the Mundial. At the World Cup in Brazil, Emenike was a very important part of late Stephen Keshi’s squad as they finished in the round of 16 before he announced his international retirement in 2015.
