Ogu Wants Fans To Get Behind Eagles, Promises Better Showing Against Iceland

Hapoel Beer Sheva midfielder, John Ogu has urged Super Eagles fans to show true patriotism by supporting the team when they take on Iceland in their second group game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia on Friday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Ogu was an unused substitute in the Super Eagles 2-0 opening day loss to Croatia last Saturday where an own goal from Oghenekaro Etebo and a penalty from Luka Modric condemned Nigeria to a defeat.

He however revealed that the team is working hard on training to give a strong and better outing.

“None of us walks on to the pitch with the intention to lose,” Ogu wrote on his Instagram page.

“Patriotism doesn’t like only when we do well. It means standing with the team through thick and thin.”

“We have a very important game against Iceland coming up, we are working hard for a better and strong outing. Thank you all for your support so far.”

    The problem is not the players , the problem is with the coach !!
    …..the coach thinks he is smarter than us , imagine defending his indefensible lost to croatia?….He knows the best adaptable system for our Eagles is 3-5-2, then why not use it in the crucial match against Croatia but rather keep adopting a system that have failed us several against Agentina in the first half , England in the first half and Serbia in the first half of all the matches ?…it seems he is very stubborn not to listen to proper counsel!…This is our last chance to move towards qualifications, he must play our players in tne right position and use the system that is best suited for their ability .He should stop given excuses and let the players work for it and finally simmy ,Ihenacho, Victor Moses and Iwobi should all start in this match !!

  • ….infact make Rhors play every body, I don’t care how he does it. I just don’t want to hear wrong didn’t qualify. Otherwise. …..might! !

    Everybody shouting use 3-5-2, do you know what is 3-5-2? You use those formations based on what your opponents is bringing on, we were not beaten because of formation, but some players weren’t fielded correctly, those goals were unfortunate, not because of formation. Come on Super Eagles.

  • It is the job of a coach to determine the kind of formation that is best for his team base on how opponent play. Let us stop this attitude of blaming the coach or players whenever things didn’t go our way. To be fair nothing wrong with the formation used against Croatia just that it didn’t work out. After sacking the coach maybe u will take over and win the world cup for Nigeria.

    When the SE lost in their last friendly against the Czechs, we heard that they will be a different team against Croatia. Sure they were. They lost by a bigger margin! Now another promise on Iceland. I hope this is the last promise we will hear because such promises are proving to be catastrophic.
