Ogu ready to hit the ground running

Super Eagles and Académica de Coimbra midfielder, John Ogu says he is ready to hit the ground running with team ahead of the weekend's FIFA Brazil 2014 World Cup Qualifier against Ethiopia.

Ogu told naijafootball247.com that the Ethiopians have a good side and they cannot take them for granted despite winning 2-1 away from home.

"I will try to do my best. Any time I get a chance to play I will give my best. I know how important the game is and if I get a chance to play, I will give my best," Ogu said.

"Nigerians should not relax yet and I know the players will not relax too because there is still a lot to play for.

"It is not over yet and we the players know what is at stake because in football anything can happen."

Calabar has turned out to be a spiritual home of some sorts for the Eagles but Ogu says the players are happy where ever they play.

"We do not really get involved in the politics of where the team play its games but whenever we are called we give our best.

"We are happy with Calabar and we believe we will win and qualify for the World Cup straight up," he said.

"I know I'm not a super regular player with the team but I know that I will get my chance occasionally and when it comes I just want to give my best."

Ogu got his first call up to the Eagles in In March 2013 and debuted against Kenya in a 1–1 draw, where he was used as a substitute to replace an injured Victor Moses.

His first international goal against Mexico in a friendly game which took place at the Reliant Stadium in Houston.
