Chinedu Ogbuke Obasi (born 1 June 1986 in Enugu) is a Nigerian footballer. He plays as a second striker for German club FC Schalke 04, and has made seventeen appearances for the Nigerian national team.
Obasi went to Norway at the same time as his countryman John Obi Mikel; both players joining Lyn. On 20 December 2006, a transfer deal was announced with Lokomotiv Moscow and Obasi was set to move to the Russian side in January. The deal was derailed, however, when the president, sporting director and manager of Lokomotiv were all fired six days later.
Chinedu impressed in the 2005 Under-20 World Championships in the Netherlands, and scored both in the semi-final and the final (which Nigeria lost to Argentina).
Obasi was one of the outstanding performers for Nigeria at the 2010 African Nations Cup where they were beaten in the semi-finals by Ghana. In his first game of the competition against Egypt, Obasi scored, in the 12th minute of the match, in a 3–1 loss.
