Opening our list is Peter Osaze Odemwingie. You might not know this, but he actually comes from a mixed family. On July 15, 1981, Odemwingie was born to Russian Tatar mom and Nigerian dad in Tashkent (former Soviet Union). From 2002 until 2014, he played for the Nigerian National team, where he was praised for his skill and diligence.
During his quite eventful senior career, Peter played for ten different teams, most notable of which were Lokomotiv Moscow, West Brom and Cardiff City.
