Ugochukwu gave an accomplished display bodying Neymar in one of the key moments of the thrilling encounter.

“It’s a shame there was a penalty [which Neymar scored] before half-time because the team was in good shape. We had a few chances,” he was quoted by Ligue 1.com.

” But it happened and we have to accept it. We remained mobile and it paid off. We had a good reaction in the second half and the game didn’t get away from us. We can be proud of ourselves.”

    I recommend Oga Rhor to recall Ugochukwu to be an alternative of Ndidi if Ndidi absent from Super Eagles in any time;good and talent players must be recalled to SE in order to make an incredible team that can’t be surmounted…

      Recall? Had he been called up before? We don’t even sure if he’s ready for Nigeria call up

       
      • @Bentopzy I weak when I read “recall”. I was wondering where I was when the said player was capped. Let’s keep our fingers crossed on what the future holds for him and SE

         
  • He is in Rennes and doing well, fine but read the tune of the writer “The midfielder was thrown into the fray after Steven Nzonzi and Eduardo Camavinga were suspended for the game”. All the same, our scouting needs to really up there game. Our team needs all our best legs.

     
    • Rohr has scouted long before this time. When time comes, he will be called.
