Home Eagles Star Ojo Excited By Atletico Madrid Friendly

By Adeboye Amosu:

Home-based Super Eagles midfielder Dayo Ojo is delighted with the prospect of facing LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid in a friendly match later this month, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

The game tagged GOtv Max Cup will hold at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on May 22, six days after the Europa League final between Atletico and Marseille in Lyon.

It will be the first time Diego Simeone’s men will be visiting Nigeria and the Sunshine Stars player cannot wait to face some of the Spanish club’s top players.

”It’s a big opportunity for some of us as one doesn’t get the chance to play a top club like Atletico Madrid all the time,” Ojo told CSN.

“I hope to be part of the team that will play the game. It will be a big one and I expect the fans to come out in large numbers to watch the game.”

Ojo was part of the Home Eagles team that came second at the African Nations Championship early in the year in Morocco.

He was named in the team of the tournament alongside centre-back Stephen Eze who has already linked up with Bulgarian club, Locomotiv Plovdiv.

    I read the news today and asked myself, what is the essence of this match? I have no answer to it. Therefore, This is an opportunity for coach Rohr to try out new players.

    This match would have been better if he try out new striker like Umar Soddiq, Adi, Onuachu, Dessers, Enyeama, Ambrose, Nwakeli Junior and co.

    Some people may be saying that it is too late to do so but it is not too late to strengthen the team. At list, we still have up to 20-to 25 days before our 1st match which he can use to strategize his tactics and for sure Eagles will be ready for the championship.

    For sure home beased Eagles will benefits a lot from this match but are they good enough to face the world?

    Mr. Rohr and the NFF have no choice but to announce the list on Monday 14th of this month because Monday is the deadline for the list.

    God is on our side for this world cup but it is left to the people in charge of the team to make used of this great opportunity God gives to us.

    I am not really concerned about Argentina match instead, how far can Eagles go at this year world cup my people?

    Winning the world cup is what we are hoping for but anything near that is a big achievements. Fingers crossed.

    Happy weekend my people. It shall be well with us all in sha Allah. God bless Nigeria!!!
