Ogu: Super Eagles Have Learnt From Defeats, I’ll Play In Any Position

By Adeboye Amosu:

Super Eagles midfielder John Ogu believes the team have picked valuable lessons from  the 1-0 defeat against Czech Republic in their friendly encounter in Austria on Wednesday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Hapoel Be’er Sheva of Israel star started the game in midfield but switched to a centre-back role when Nigeria changed formation in the second half.

He further stated that he is ready to play in any position for the team and vowed to keep working hard in training ahead of the World Cup.

“Another “FRIENDLY “game to analyse, learn and build on towards the World Cup. Everyone is working hard and as well preparing for the task ahead. Any position the Manager wants me to play, I will fight and work hard as long as it is to win for my country!!.Thanks to all our fans,” Out tweeted on Thursday.

Ogu will be playing in his first World Cup in Russia following his shocking omission from Nigeria’s squad that took part in Brazil 2014.

Wednesday’s defeat against Czech Republic was the Super Eagles’ third in four games.

  • I beleive in you Ogu, your hard work has not been well noticed by the coaching team until now. You have always played well to justify your inclusion in the Team, # Algeria vs Niferia equaliser remains fresh in my mind. Keep up the good work bro
    To GR our coach………
    I sometimes fail to understand Rohr’s logic, why is he still using a striker that hasn’t yielded any return so far? Ighalo’s stats speaks so loud against his status as our main striker…..4 goals in 18 Caps versus Iheanacho…..8 goals in 17 Caps. Even our support strikers/ midfielders in Moses and Iwobi has better returns. He plays in China but can’t even assert himself in such a lowly rated league while Iheanaco and Simmy plays in top leagues with sterling recent form.
    Please GR……..be fair and apply your mind well, equity and fairness is vital just as you anoint Izoho based on youthfulness and potential future years to play and improve against the older GKs, same applys to Iheanacho to further boost his confidence to improve better as he is also one of our future.
    Ighalo has been a disappointment so far, only 1 goal for SE since the WC qualifying campaign till date………WOW!!!

    You alright, Keep it up. Thanks anyway.

  • John Ogu is too heavy and slow to be in the back 3 in the 3-5-2 formation.The World Cup is not for experimenting.We must use our most experienced defenders in Omeruo/Ekong/Balogun for this formation.A word is enough for the wise.
