Ogu Confident Eagles Will Beat Seychelles In Victoria

By Johnny Edward:

Hapoel Beer Sheva midfielder John Ogu is optimistic that the Super Eagles will bounce back from their opening day loss to South Africa in the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to finally earn a spot for the final tournament in Cameroon next year, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


Nigeria currently trail Libya and South Africa after matchday-one, with the three time African champions traveling away to Victoria to face Seychelles on the 8th of September.

“We had the game under control, and we stayed true to our principles, but unfortunately, we lost. Our opponents were strong, especially on the counter but we will get it right in Victoria,”Ogu said of the defeat in Uyo in a chat with CSN.


“I think we have the quality to get a win from the game in Victoria. We were just unlucky in the first game against South Africa because we had some more favourable chances to score.”

The Super Eagles are currently third in their group after matchday-one with no points behind Libya and South Africa who have three points apiece.

    “Leicester City will miss Jamie Vardy on Saturday. You cannot box him to a corner.”
    “As a Liverpool defender, I will be more comfortable facing Iheanacho because you can have him where you want. Its not the case with Vardy. It could be a difficult game for Leicester,” Dixon stressed.
    Iheanacho has played in all of the Foxes’ three Premier League matches so far this season, he is yet to score for the club in the league in the new campaign while Vardy has one to his tally.
