Michael Ologo did not make the final 21-man list released by the Nigeria Football Federation. He was part of the players that played the two qualifying matches against Tanzania, under Coach Salisu Yusuf, where he paired with Isaiah Ejeh of Mjallby in Sweden.
One may be inquisitive about what went wrong with Ologo Michael, Was he affected by sickness? He was ill for three days, which prevented him from playing against Zambia. For his quality as a player is not in doubt. His playing in the top Elite League in Turkey would have been a stroll in the pan to AFCON U20.
Just yesterday, www.ckdmedia.ng reported that three foreign based players made the 25-Man List. With the omission of his name from the 21-man list, only two foreign based players finally made the 21-man squad; Ahmed Abduallahi of Gent and Abel Ogwuche (Trelleborgs FF of Sweden).
