Super Eagles’ and Hapoel Be’er Sheva defensive midfielder, John Ogochukwu Ogu, has expressed his readiness to face the two- time world champions Argentina in a friendly match in November.
Ogu, who has featured less under current Super Eagles’ manager, Gernot Rohr, told AOIFootball.com in an exclusive interview before his club’s game against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Monday evening, that the game will be a good test for the team ahead of the World Cup next year.
“The game will be a good test for the Eagles. Even though Argentina struggled to qualify for the World Cup, they will still be a force to reckon with.
“I believe we have the squad to match them and even though they pose some of the best players in the world, we have a very young and united squad that can match any team in the world,” Ogu said.
The former Académica of Portugal midfielder, added that he was confident in his ability to break into the starting line-up of the Super Eagles but he’s always happy so long as the team keeps churning out impressive results.
“I must confess that the national team is even more competitive than before; every player cannot play at the same time so I will wait for my time and take it when it comes,” Ogu concluded.
Ogu has featured 12 times for the Super Eagles since making his debut in 2013, scoring once in a friendly against Mexico in Houston that same year.
