John Ogu: Making a Statement with Poise

first_imgIn Ogu’s first two notable games for the national team, he came in as a substitute. In his first game against Kenya in 2013, he came in for injured Victor Moses, while in his second game, he replaced injured Ogenyi Onazi, until he was handed another opportunity to make the Super Eagles’ team in an African Cup of Nations qualifying match against South Africa.With injuries to several players in Nigeria’s last match against Algeria, Ogu was given a starting shirt and he put up a superlative performance, crowned with a spectacular goal.However, he would not have been available for the game after picking an injury in his club but had to go the extra mile to spend his personal money to be ready for the game against Algeria.He went off injured in a Europa League game for his Israeli side, Hapoel Be’er Sheva against Romanian side, Steau Bucuresti, due to a muscle injury, and was later told he would be out for four weeks.However, the 29-year-old battled his way back to full fitness in order to be fit for the game against Algeria, and returned to the pitch two weeks earlier than the time the doctors gave him.“October 20, in a game against Steau Bucharest in our UEFA Cup match, I had a little tear in my satorious muscle that forced me out of the game. I usually don’t go out from games but that night it was painful so I did.“Weekend of that same week, we were to play against Maccabi Tel Aviv which is a very important game for my club. Training on Saturday, I wanted to play with me begging our doctors to inject me .But they refused because they don’t want to risk it.“I was thinking also of this day and moment in my career. So, I went for Ultra sound and it was revealed I had a tear and that I will be out for four weeks. Thank God for the Gene he blessed me with. I told them I will be back in two weeks. “I spent my money to visit a specialist, went for a therapy with my team three times, spent also on Orthotics to fit in my boots and came back exactly in two weeks just to be back to represent my country after missing three league games and Europa League game.“I’m not looking way too sharp yet but I will keep working hard. I’m really proud of the team against Algeria. We worked as a team and fought for each other. I am Happy all my efforts were not in vain. I’m grateful to God for his grace upon my life,” Ogu said on his Twitter handle.Speaking with THISDAY, former Nigerian international, Tajudeen Disu, said: “I think Rohr is starting to trust Ogu after his performance against Senegal in London. Though, it was far away from a vintage performance but the coach saw in him a bright future and a room for improvement and the player grabbed the opportunity with a vintage performance against Algeria. He has the potentials no doubt, but he needs to compose himself more and prove to the coach that he’s the best option for that position.“Without trying to undermine his Israeli club-Hapoel Be’er Sheva, a regular shirt for the national team could also earn him bigger clubs in Europe and ofcourse, better pay. Those are some of the advantages that come along with enjoying regular shirt for the national team,” Disu stated.He, however, attributed his absence from the national team to the decision he took while in Portugal. “It started with a friendly in South Africa when the coach asked me to feign injury but I refused. We were African champions and I wanted to be part of the squad, playing for my country is too important for me,” Ogu told Supersport. “When I returned to Portugal everything changed and he stopped playing me. I didn’t get much attention. I continued working on my game but he never played me. It was only after the team list came out for the World Cup that he (the coach tried to be nice to me) but it was too late. Now, I am in Israel and playing regularly, enjoying my football, winning league titles and back in the national team.”On how he feels that at Hapoel he is one of the first names on the team sheet but for the Super Eagles, despite his experience, he is not a guaranteed starter, he said: “I am one of those who will always respect the decisions of the coach. It is a dream to be called up to represent Nigeria and so it is an honour to be in the squad. So, when I come to the Super Eagles camp, I do not feel I am coming to replace anyone. I just feel I am coming to help my country win matches and qualify for tournaments.”It therefore remains to be seen how much conviction Rohr now has in Ogu.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigerian football fans were disappointed when Super Eagles Technical Advicer, Gernot Rohr, omitted John Ogu’s name during Nigeria’s first World Cup qualifier against Zambia considering his form both in the Israeli league and the Europa league. The German was not convinced about him, saying then, “We have the best players with us in the team for the game against Zambia and Ogu isn’t one of them.” However, with his performance against Algeria last week in Constantine, Kunle Adewale writes on whether the player has finally won the heart of the German tacticianSpeaking at a media parley ahead of Super Eagles’ World Cup qualifiers game against Zambia, Gernot Rohr revealed that the highly rated defensive midfielder who was voted as the best foreign player in Israel in 2016 was not among the best players in Nigeria. “We have the best players with us here in the team for the game against Zambia and John Ogu isn’t one of them,” he had said.last_img read more

Badger grapplers no match for No. 1 Iowa

first_imgWisconsin entered Sunday\’s meet coming off a big win over Northwestern, but could not handle the Hawkeyes at the Field House.[/media-credit]After beating Northwestern 32-6 Friday, No. 14 Wisconsin was hoping to ride that momentum Sunday as it faced the No. 1 Iowa Hawkeyes.Instead, the Badgers fell in a match that nearly perfectly mirrored their victory, as they lost 31-6 in their last match of the regular season. The loss included two big individual wins, seven losses and a loss by forfeit.Going into the match, the Badgers knew they would be facing some tough competition in the top-ranked Hawkeyes.“I think we were pretty prepared,” UW head coach Barry Davis said. “We knew some matches would be determined by one point; we just ended up on the wrong end of them.”Of Sunday’s 10 matchups, five were determined by a one-point differential — one in favor of the Badgers, four in favor of the Hawkeyes.“We had some missed opportunities here,” Davis said. “We just have to find a way to win and I think we need to look at our positions. We gave up a little bit too much today and their position was generally better than ours.“And that was the dual meet right there. So it was tight.”The afternoon began with a major decision for Iowa’s No. 3 Matt McDonough at 125 lbs. He beat Wisconsin’s Drew Hammen by a score of 10-1. Hammen’s one point came on an escape in the first. With the win, the match score was 4-0 Hawkeyes.At 133 lbs., the first matchup of the day with ranked wrestlers on both sides paired Wisconsin’s No. 6 Tyler Graff against Iowa’s No. 3 Daniel Dennis. Despite both competitors scoring a point with an escape, Dennis won the match 2-1 with 1:52 of riding time.The decision gave Iowa a 7-0 edge.UW’s Cole Schmitt then faced No. 4 Montell Marion at 141 lbs.Schmitt had a lead at the end of the first two periods, 2-0 and 4-3 respectively. However, Marion pulled it out in the third with a take down, five near fall points and one minute of riding time to win the match 11-4.The Hawkeyes continued to roll, stretching the lead to 10-0.With 25 wins on the season, Wisconsin’s No. 5 Kyle Ruschell forfeited at 149 lbs. Iowa’s No. 1 Brent Metcalf, who had defeated Ruschell earlier in the season, took the win bringing the score to 16-0 in favor of Iowa.After his first win since Jan. 9 against Northwestern on Friday, Wisconsin’s Greg Burke lost to Aaron Janssen with a 6-5 decision at 157 lbs.Trailing 5-4 after the first period, Burke scored with an escape and brought the score to 5-5 at the end of the second. However, Janssen won with an escape of his own increasing the lead to 19-0.With the first Wisconsin win of the day at 165 lbs., No. 1 Andrew Howe defeated No. 4 Ryan Morningstar 2-1.The end of the first period was scoreless. Howe and Morningstar each scored with an escape in the second and third periods, respectively. Yet, 1:04 of riding time gave Howe the win. His win cut Iowa’s lead to 19-3.Coming into today’s match undefeated, Howe didn’t feel the pressure to finish out the regular season undefeated.“You can’t really let it get to you; you can’t get all nervous,” Howe said. “Before you go on the wrestling mat you just got to go through the match in your head and just kind of relax.”At 174 lbs., the No. 2 Hawkeye Jay Borschel pinned Brendan Ard in the second to earn a 7-0 win, bringing the overall score to 25-3.Wisconsin’s Travis Rutt then lost 4-3 to No. 11 Phillip Keddy at 184 lbs. Trailing 3-2 after the first period, Rutt tied up the score with an escape in the second. However, Keddy responded by scoring an escape in the third for the win, bringing the score to 28-3.With the second win of the night for the Badgers, No. 7 Trevor Brandvold defeated Luke Lofthouse with a 4-2 decision at 197 lbs. Brandvold scored one takedown and two escapes to clinch his 10th win in a row. His win cut Iowa’s advantage to 28-6.At heavyweight, No. 10 Dan Erekson defeated Wisconsin’s Eric Bugenhagen 3-2.Despite a loss in this match, Davis hopes his team will learn from its mistakes and perform better at the Big Ten Championships in two weeks.“There are some things we’re working on and they’re coming along but not quite there yet,” Davis said. “Even at the Big Ten Championships many matches could be one point matches going one way or the other.“We just have to turn them in our direction next time and we’ll be fine.”Like his coach, Howe is looking forward to the championship season.“Nothing really matters until NCAAs in March,” Howe said. “So that’s where I’m looking to go undefeated.”last_img read more

Man City’s Silva Charged over Mendy Tweet

first_imgManchester City’s Bernardo Silva has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association over a tweet he sent to team-mate Benjamin Mendy.Silva compared Mendy to the character on a packet of Conguitos – a sweet brand available in Spain and Portugal.The Portugal player, 25, is alleged to have committed an “aggravated breach” of FA rules as it included reference “expressed or implied, to race and/or colour and/or ethnic origin”. Bernardo Silva Silva has until 9 October to respond.The post was published at 12:44 BST on 22 September but was deleted at 13:30, although Silva later tweeted: “Can’t even joke with a friend these days.”The FA subsequently contacted City for their observations, while Silva has written to the governing body to say he regrets the fact his social media post may have unintentionally caused offence.Anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out criticised the post and urged the FA to act, adding that “racist stereotypes are never acceptable as ‘banter’”.In a statement on Wednesday, the FA said Silva’s activity is alleged to have been “insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute”.Silva has been repeatedly defended by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, who said it would be a “mistake” to punish his playmaker for the tweet.England forward Raheem Sterling supported Silva against accusations of racism, saying it was “a situation between two friends”.Mendy has also written in support of Silva, saying he did not take offence at the tweet.France defender Mendy and Silva are close friends and played together at Monaco before both joined City in 2017.A previous video of Silva joking with Mendy has also been passed on to the FA.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Raiders coach Jon Gruden addresses Derek Carr trade rumors

first_img“He’s going to be our quarterback,” Gruden said. “I’m not going to address all the rumors. I could care less about the rumors. … I’ve got a lot of confidence in Carr.”Carr completed 68.9 percent of his passes and threw for 19 touchdowns, along with 10 interceptions, on a Raiders team that struggled in 2018.

And we are so excited to have him.“The energy that he brings to the practice field, the meeting room, his preparation is legendary.”Gruden left the broadcast booth and signed a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Raiders in January 2018.
