High Flying Turkey Based Defender Gets Nigeria U20 Invitation, Shines Against Galatasaray – The Street Journal
Head coach of the Nigeria U20 team Ladan Bosso has handed a call up to Istanbulspor defender Inainfe Michael Ologo to join the camp of the team ahead of the U20 Africa Cup of Nations. Bosso who is keen on strengthening his defence has gotten assurance from the camp of the player that he will be available for the tournament which will run from February to March in Egypt. Ologo is the second central defender based abroad who has been added to the squad with the team set to be without the first choice centre defence duo of Bolu Sholumade and Razak Adegbite. The pair were instrumental in the run to lifting the WAFU B championship in Niger Republic. The other defender is Trelleborgs of Sweden record signing Abel Ogwuche. One among the duo is expected to pair with Nasarawa United defender Benjamin Fredrick who was the standout defender in the team in their first phase of camping. One week ago, 19 year old Ologo produced a performance well above his age despite his team losing 1-2 to league giants Galatasaray. He was on for the entire duration of the game which was decided by a brace from Bafetembi Gomes. The lessons from that game will come handy for the Nigeria U20 team at the AFCON.
