Nigerian international John Ogu has set his sights on helping Hapoel Beer Sheva earn a vital win against Moldovan champions FC Sheriff Tiraspol in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League qualifying round today.
Ogu scored in the first leg played in Israel as Beer Sheva out-scored their opponents 3-2.
The 28-year-old is expected to start in midfield while his Nigerian compatriot Tony Nwakaeme who featured for 90 minutes in the first leg is likely to keep his place.
“Big focus on the return leg against Sheriff. I believe God the father, the son, and the greatest for help,” Ogu wrote on his official instagram page.
The midfielder had earlier revealed that he is carrying a small knock but will be fine for the match this evening.
“I’m looking forward to the return leg in Moldova,” he said. “Still working on my fitness. Didn’t train much at our camp in Poland because of the pain on my knee but am getting better each day.
“It will be a great achievement for the club and the players to reach the group phase of the Champions League because it is the best club tournament in the world.”
