Ugbo also scored once in three appearances as England’s U-20 side won the Toulon Tournament in June 2017.

He is now working towards acquiring clearance from the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

“The paperwork is not quite in order yet, but my agent is working on it”, the striker reveals. “Playing a World Cup is every footballer’s dream, isn’t it?” Ugbo told hln.be.

The former Roda player has scored 10 goals in 16 league appearances for Cercle Brugge this season.

      Oga Ike Ugbo is a Center Forward not a Midfielder. You pipu should not start again now oo. Same way they changed Semi AJAYI from Center Back to DMF

        He used English language to write his point and not Arabic. He did not say Ike is a midfielder he was only stating that we have capable strikers now, we should try and get more midfielder and quality defenders which he us 100% correct. Next time read in between the lines
