  • Well done John Ogu. Continue working hard and stay focus because you have it in you to do well at the World Cup if selected.

    Your delicious long range finesse shot against Algeria is still fresh in the mind.

    More of that to come this summer bro.

    Well-done bro…
    Hope to see you in russia

  • mutum 5 years ago

    I doubt if he will make the cut to Russia. he is presently behind Mikel agu in that posotion.we all know the rohr prefers agu to ogu. I hope n wish he makes it. The truth is we have not seen enough of John ogu and mike Agu in the eagles. The only make cameo appearance for the eagles. personally, I prefer ogu cos of his strength n stamina.

    • lambert 5 years ago

      Tell them their player wont make the cut.He did not get a minute during WCQ,

  • Abdul andah 5 years ago

    John Ogu is far better than that guy called Mikel agu. And Agu has been playing for his club since he returned back from injury.

    • Ayphillydegreat 5 years ago

      Agu has been warming the bench for the last five games or so. Shehu is the one playing regularly. Shehu is far ahead of both Ogu and Agu in that Midfield if needed even though he’s undisputed right back or wing back for the team

  • Abdul andah 5 years ago

    …has NOT been playing…

  • Raphael Azubuike 5 years ago

    Agu is not a threat to ogu, hes is fighting with etebo, or joel Obi, to partner Ndidi if rohr elect to discontinue ndidi/ onazi combo which offers little or nothing going forward, and I think he has a very good chance, among all the candidates for the central defensive role, this role requires both defensive and attacking skills, I would have picked joel obi but he is injury prone and his performance in the friendlies surgests he need time to gel with his teammates, so I pick ogu, he proved himself against algeria and argentina.

  • Chairmanfemi 5 years ago

    I would personally prefer Ndidi/John Ogu’s combo in midfield cuz he offers huge support to the team when attacking and when the ball drops back during attack,he has the long range shot(killer) but Onazi on the other hand mostly performs the duty of Wilfred Ndidi that is recovering the ball from opponents and when he tries to go forward,he balloons the ball into the air unlike John Ogu whose Long range shot are most times on target as he showed us during Algeria,Argentina and even Poland match

    • Walking 5 years ago

      Ogu has an attribute which is lacking in the midfield and that pace and accurate shots… I think a pair of him and ndidi with Mikel and moses… Using the 4-1-4-1 formation..

  • lambert 5 years ago

    Ogu playing in isreal is not in same class like Agu.
    Agu is highly rated than him ,make una stop all this fake talk.
    He has a new coach it is normal.

  • mutum 5 years ago

    @lamber! football no the hide for body o. if u are good u are good. how many loan spell agu don go? he played for fc porto only on pre seasons. ogu is far far better joor.

    • lambert 5 years ago

      Porto is in same class as isreal? how come d coach did not use him throughout the WCQ?If it is easy let ogu go Turkey abi Isreal na him papa house?
      If obi is fit ogu wont go to wc.

  • No sentiments ogu is far better than agu,and let me remind u dat ogu was many years in portugal b4 he left for isreal.and he is constant at europa league.xo i don’t know were yur argument is coming from

  • Ayphillydegreat 5 years ago

    Ogu will make the team albeit as a backup. Unless if J obi and Ndidi are not fit enough. If the coach invites Anderson Esiti he may miss out if he fail to perform better than him. The fact that he can be deadly at long range efforts give him an edge to at least be in final 23, but I will prefer a fit Joel Obi ahead of him
