His words: “It was a wonderful experience for us playing against the best players at the Confederations Cup and I want to assure you that we would strive hard to qualify for the World Cup proper.

Ogu, who opened his national team goal account against Mexico in the United States of America, however. offered to play in any position on the pitch.
“I’m better suited in the central midfield and I have a powerful left foot but I can play in position the coach ask me to. So, I’m jack of all trades and master of all,” he boasted.
