Ogu Makes Eagles World Cup Vow

John Ogu

Most of the players that ensured Nigeria qualified for the World Cup were included in the squad.

Disu feels veteran striker Obafemi Martins was "unfortunate" not to have made the list after his exploits with Shanghai Shenhua was halted by a serious injury, thus, ending hopes of a recall.

About goalkeeping, Siasia wished that Rohr had extended invitation to Ejide for his experience and physicality, but added that Ikechukwu Ezenwa was number one during the qualifiers and should retain that role for World Cup.

Skipper John Obi Mikel leads the midfield, which has also Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi, John Ogu, Mikel Agu, Ogenekaro Etebo, Uche Agbo and Joel Obi. Players like the Captain, Mikel Obi, Victor Moses, Francis Uzoho and Odion Ighalo.

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.

Patrick Ibeh of metro FM Radio (Godfather), said that Rohr had a team capable of springing surprises during the Mundial save hard luck against them. We did not miss out any player that is in form but omitted from the list.

"All that is needed now is to pray that the list of players released gives us the desired result at the World Cup".

"He (Rohr) is in charge and I know he always do the best for the country".

A freelance journalists, Rotimi Arabi, said the coach was wise enough to keep to the winning team, an action he regarded as noble. The team's responsibility is just to play football.

And with Nigeria set to play DR Congo, England and the Czech Republic to prepare for the World Cup, the former Abiola Babes defender believes some players, with outside chances, might use that opportunity to gatecrash the setup.
