Ogu Makes Eagles World Cup Vow

Ogu Makes Eagles World Cup Vow

It is a wonderful privilege for me to make the [World Cup] list.

The Super Eagles are not afraid of any opposition in Russia at the World Cup because they are well motivated; the Nigeria Football Federation's 1st Vice-President, Seyi Akinwunmi, has said.

"He (Efe) would be of huge help to the Super Eagles defence at the World Cup, while Junior Ajayi would have added fire power to the Eagles attack, and should have been given the chance to prove himself".

"We are happy with what we have on ground and there is no worry in the camp at all, anything that may come up will be just a minor issue".

"I give God the glory and the coach [Gernot Rohr] for this opportunity", Lokosa told Goal.

"Ezenwa did his best during the qualifiers and he kept for us to qualify".

According to him, the need for commendation stemmed from the fact that some Nigerians had anticipated that he would succumb to pressure from interest groups, but the list has proved them wrong. "But the coach has to do whatever he thinks it's the best", said the ex-Flying Eagles coach.

"So, if we go to the World Cup now, our performances will not depend on the quality of the players but on our luck if it can carry us far in the tournament".

Ogu could not hide his joy when tweeted after learning of his inclusion in the list, " I feel blessed and honoured to be in the 30-man provisional list to the World Cup.

"The moment I saw him, I saw his talent".

The Nigerian team will open their World Cup account against Croatia on June 16, Iceland on June 22 before taking on Argentina on June 26 for the final group game at the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg.
