John Ogu Contests 2018 CAF Awards Africa XI Selection

Hapoel Be’er Sheva midfielder John Ogu, has questioned the selection process of the Africa XI that was unveiled at the 2018 CAF Awards pointing to the absence of Super Eagles teammate, Wilfred Ndidi from the lineup.

In a tweet posted on his official handle, Ogu posited that the Leicester City midfielder had done enough in the past year to earn a spot on the Africa XI team.

Ndidi who was a key player in Leicester City’s 2017/2018 Premier League campaign and also featured for the Super Eagles at the 2018 World Cup in Russia lost out of the selection which did not go well with compatriot, John Ogu.

Last season, Ndidi was rated among the best in his position for the Foxes, leading with the most tackles made (138) in the entire season and contributing 1,684 passes.

Ndidi also lost the African Youth Player of the Year Award to Moroccan, Achraf Hakimi, who is on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid.

Ogu later went ahead to appreciate the midfielder, also adding William Troost-Ekong to the mix, who he says is dedicated to his club side and National team.
