The Head of Nigeria's World Cup bid, Segun Odegbami
Read Segun Odegbami's answers to your questions on Wednesday 22 January.

The head of Nigeria's controversial bid to host the 2010 World Cup, Segun Odegbami, has answered your queries.

The former Super Eagles captain is the man behind Nigeria's vision of sharing the games between five African nations.

Benin, Cameroon, Ghana and Togo would all hold matches under Nigeria's grand plan.

But Cameroon's FA made the embarrassing announcement earlier in the week that it had not been contacted about the co-hosting bid, and also suggested that it would be better if the continent backed South Africa.

Only now has Odegbami been given the go-ahead by Nigeria's government to pursue the co-hosting arrangements.

But the former Super Eagle remains adamant that his bid is viable and deserves to win Fifa's backing.

Segun Odegbami has answered some of the questions you have asked him and his answers will be published on Wednesday 22 January.
