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.
