Eagles Training Game – Ogu Steals The Show As Rohr Experiments With Three At The Back


All eyes was feasted on Hapoel Be’er Sheva midfield powerhouse John Ogu who for the second day lined up as a centre back in Training with the Super Eagles ahead of their clash against South Africa on Saturday.


The Eagles lined up with Rohr breaking up the near perfect central defence ‎partnership between Chidozie Awaziem and William Troost-Ekong in favour of a back three style of defence in the practice game that ended 0-0.

Although Alampasu put in some fine save and showed awareness to pluck crosses, the main star of the show was John Ogu who was commanding as part of a back three comprising of Awaziem and Elderson Echiejile.

Ogu occupied the left side of the three centre backs and dominated Henry Onyekuru and Victor Osimhen in aerial duels, with Ahmed Musa’s pace the only worry he had throughout the session.

His constant barking out of instructions also helped Awaziem who played as his pair in central defence put in a commendable shift, while for the other team Troost-Ekong and Kenneth Omeruo were returned as centre back pairings just like they did against Zambia in Ndola.
