Super Eagles’ midfielder, John Ogu has come out to reveal his frustration after seeing no Nigerian player named in the inaugural CAF best XI, positing that Wilfred Ndidi deserves a place in the selection.
Despite playing at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and qualifying for the AFCON with a game to spare, no Nigerian was deemed fit to make the cut, a decision that has left Ogu saddened.
“Let’s put sentiments aside. I can argue this anywhere that Ndidi and Troost-Ekong, even Ighalo should be there. Awards are based on your performance for club and country and not how big of a club you play in.
Ndidi plays in arguably the best league in the world.
“How someone comes up here and says clubs they play matters. Like are you kidding me?
