Dreams come true – John Ogu

Dreams come true – John Ogu

Powerful midfielder, John Ogu Ugochukwu took his Super Eagles opportunity after scoring a beauty in Friday’s draw but disclosed how his chance to shine was threatened.

John Ogu has revealed the sacrifices he made to position himself for his first World Cup 2018 qualifiers appearance with Nigeria.


The midfielder who featured more prominently for the Super Eagles at 2013 Confederations Cup has been on the periphery of Gernot Rohr’s squad with the likes of Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi and Mikel Agu ahead of him in the midfield pecking order.

Having booked their spot in Russia, the German tactician rang the change with the Hapoel Beer Sheva man handed his first start at the heart of the pack.

And the former Académica player who described the feeling as a ‘dream come true’ revealed how he had to get himself prepared – including sitting out matches for his club and taking care of his treatment bills – for Friday’s duel in a series of tweets.
