Visa Hitch Stops Ogu From Super Eagles Friendlies; Ndidi Doubtful

 

By Johnny Edward:

Hapoel Be'er Sheva midfielder John Ogu will miss Friday's Super Eagles friendly against Corsica after he was denied an entry visa into France, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Nigeria face a Corsica XI on Friday and Togo on June 1 in friendly games in France ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in Uyo on June 10.
Ogu confirmed to Completesportsnigeria.com in a chat that he will not be part of the friendlies against Corsica and Togo.

"I'm not going to be there. Visa hitch," he replied when Completesportsnigeria.com asked when he was going to report to camp.

Ogu, who won the domestic Israeli double Hapoel Be'er Sheva this season, made 32 appearances for the Camels this term and has made 11 appearances for the Super Eagles, scoring once.

Meanwhile, Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi could miss out on Friday's friendly against Corsica after he missed his flight Completesportsnigeria.com gathered.

The central midfielder is currently stuck in Nigeria, having travelled to his homeland following the end of the 2016-2017 season.

Ndidi is expected to fly with other Super Eagles players and officials to Paris for their next match against Togo on June 1.
