Lagos - Hapoel Be'er Sheva of Israel midfielder John Ugochukwu Ogu says he hopes to carry on his good form from Israel to the Super Eagles, when they face Le Sao of Chad in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next weekend in Kaduna.
The 27-year old was outstanding in his maiden season in Israel, playing 33 times in all competitions and scoring 4 goals, en-route to leading his club to the Israeli Cup final, and he says he hopes to continue that form with Nigeria.
"It was a good first season for me in Israel, I played a lot games and helped my team to the cup final and I hope to continue that form here (with the Super Eagles).

"I'm glad to be called up for this game and I know how important it is for us because we failed to qualify for the last Africa Cup of Nations.
"It was a tough year for us last year but if we can bring our A game during these qualifiers I don't think we'll have any problems.
"For me particularly, I just want to replicate my form for my club here and I want to do even better for my country," he said.
The former Academica de Coimbra of Portugal midfielder is expected to feature against the Chadians at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, given the absence of John Obi Mikel.
