Super Eagles Star Suffers Champions League Heartbreak
Super Eagles and Hapoel Be'er Sheva midfielder John Ogu has been left disappointed after his side failed to make it to the UEFA Champions League group stage.
Ogu’s Israeli outfit were edged out by Slovenian club, Maribor on Tuesday night.
Maribor beat the boys from Israel to the Champions League group stage ticket thanks to the away goal rule.
Maribor lost 2-1 in Israel but the return leg ended 1-0 in favour of Maribor who held on to a 15-minute opener by Mitja Viler.
Ogu who alongside team-mate Anthony Nwakaeme have been named in the Eagles' squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon took to Twitter after the game saying:

"They say Every disappointment is a Blessing. We learn from every Experience. Thank u to our fans for Everything. We will get there someday.
"And to Everyone of you out here who wished me well. God bless you all for your support. I appreciate y'all love and support for me."
Hapoel Be'er Sheva were hoping to be the fourth Israeli team to make it to the group stage of Europe’s biggest club competition.
