In my opinion a future Irish star. Great pace and strength with loads of skill. I would be amazed if he is not in England within 12 months.

First choice is Nigeria for him, as quoted in this article in May.

Bit early to be saying that yet but he has improved incredibly as the seasons gone on. McDonald certainly knows how to get the best out of him and I'm sure with his contacts in England Chiedozie will be over there in no time. If there's anything he could improve on it would be his strength.

He said his first choice is Nigeria, which is fair enough. Never says he wouldn't play for us though, and I can't imagine he'd turn down a call-up if we offered him one first.

Decent LOI player with potential.

I'm not sure if he is international standard but a player I wouldn’t mind seeing back in Cork.

Well the Germans beat them 13-0 and the Czechs beat them 7-0 so that suggests they are tightening things up at the back

It's 100% true that he's on trial with them, not sure what game he played but he played as a trialist apparently. Looking likely that he'll be signed very soon aswell. Limerick get a nice bit of money anyway as he has over a year left on his contract. You'd imagine he'll be loaned out for the next few seasons but very good news nonetheless.

He has good days, good enough to be noticed by Chelsea level good, and he has days where he doesn't get going, but he finished the season consistently in the side at Limerick and started adding end product more often, be it assists or goals & did begin to look very impressive at times, direct and skillful carrier of the ball, a defenders bad day. If he does what he can do week in week out, his stage will be a bigger one than LOI offers, definitely.

He identifies Nigerian primarily, and to be fair was clear on that before any of this attention came on him, think he moved here through his fathers work when he was 12 (could be wrong, going from memory) but if he had both to pick from, it wouldn't be us, last time he spoke on the matter anyway, but you would hope its been made very clear to him the door is open and he is very welcome to come in at the very least & please God he will.

Hit and miss at the start of the season but ended the season excellently, our biggest attacking threat and scored some cracking goals. Best player in our side by a country mile along with Hery last year. He has never been approached for our U21s AFAIK. And I'm nearly certain he said a couple of months back that he'd never turn down a call up for Ireland. Stoke also showed a lot of interest in him so no doubt he'll end up somewhere over there soon.

saw him play a couple of games. has a look of adeybyor/kanu about him. looks like he's barely moving yet others can't get near him. very strong and skillful. i'd say he has huge potential and could go a long way if he works hard.

It’s a bit strange that Ogbene could go to Chelsea at age 20 and still not have any underage caps at any level. Not a great indictment of the U19 or U21 set ups, especially with our dearth of forward talent in his age group.

What sort of social media messages should Chiedozie Ogbene expect from our resident forum racists? 

i) Vilification because he wants to play for Nigeria, or 
ii) Sarcastic praise for not "contaminating" the Eire international scene with any more "blackness", in the way Cyrus Christie apparently did?

I don't know many people who'd have an issue with Ogbene lining out for Ireland, nor many who'd begrudge him playing for Nigeria; especially considering he appears to have been mostly overlooked by the FAI. You'll always get a few knuckle-draggers, but they pale into insignificance compared to the decent-minded fans.

TBF he has said Nigeria are his first preference so maybe that's partly why.

Says that he's waiting for the call, "Be it from Ireland or Nigeria." 

He's a decent player from what I've seen of him this season. We should call him up to the under-21's.

Even if Nigeria is his first choice, they probably aren't aware of him. If he's in and around our youth squads then there's a good chance that he might favor us if he does ever become good enough to represent either nation as a full international.

Only one way to find out.

We need to experiment a bit between now and next set of proper games so would be no harm having a look at him. Be it u21 or senior.

As far as strikers go we need to gamble a bit on youth. We have an opportunity now. Probably a few ahead of him in Q. Need a right look at hogan and McGuire. Probably other young lads as well but cannot think of too many strikers.

A cap, even against Oman, may help him get the move he needs to develop. Obviously not near level required yet but maybe it's time we used international games to help kick start payers careers. Especially when they are strikers!

As Ogbene has said, he's open to both. It would appear he simply hasn't been approached, which is quite the oversight on the FAI's part considering we don't produce a huge amount of naturally talented strikers.

If Ogbene wants to be considered for Ireland then he absolutely should be included in the u21's. 

He has been very impressive every time I've seen him play. He is a strong athletic lad with a super build, has quick acceleration and can strike a ball well.

He’s a very talented player and appears to have a good attitude too - he left Cork for Limerick as he wasn’t happy with the game time he was getting, which is a ballsy move for a young lad.

I’d be hopeful that he makes it over in England at some level.

Ya Cotter is the Neymar looking lad. Well he used to be a couple of years ago when he had the longer hair. I don't want to be particularly mean to the young fella, but I have no idea what Mick McCarthy is on if he's signing him at Ipswich. I don't think he'd get on any first division LOI side except as a filler.

Having seen almost every game he played last season Cotter is honestly nowhere near good enough to even be playing LOI and I think the whole city is baffled by the move. He really shouldn't be anywhere near the squad and has a stinking attitude. Maybe he'll prove everybody wrong but I'd be absolutely shocked.

If he plays a few games for Brentford between now and then, no reason why he shouldn't be called into the squad.

I would like to see about 8 or 9 new faces in the squad for the Turkey game, rather than the usual old, wrong side of 30, tried and tested players.
 
Nothing to lose in giving new lads a chance.

Ogbene should be able to get up to speed with the physicality of the Championship pretty quickly. He is very strong and quick. I'm backing him to succeed over there.

This fella's name reminds me of a player who played for Gillingham a few years ago. He scored a wonder goal one week and I remember they called him an Irish striker. Osadebe or something? Haven't heard of him since.

Just released by Cambridge United and signed for Newport on a free, made his debut there the weekend before last as a substitute. I'm not sure if he was involved against Spurs. He seems to be a talented lad but there are questions over his attitude.

if he hits the ground running at Brentford, Nigeria will probably call him up for their pre world cup friendlies.

Isn't it still pretty much 50/50 in regard to will he either play for us or Nigeria?

Are there any guarantees that Ogbene will accept a call up if he's asked?

I know there was an article on him some time ago but I wonder what his thoughts are now. 

The logical thing to do would be to invite him into a training camp with the seniors, I think naming him in a full squad might be a little too much too soon.

It is still 50/50 but Ogbene has came out and said he would never reject a call up from either side. Now if us and Nigeria tried to call him up at the same time that would be a different story.

Now more than ever African countries are exploring all avenues in regard to widening their player pools, so now is the time to act if we want to make Ogbene will be playing for Ireland.

Personally, I'm not a fan of just capping dual nationality players for the sake especially young players!

I feel a call up should be earned, but I would have zero issue with Ogbene getting asked to link up to the senior team to train and sure if he impresses brilliant get him involved for the next game.

I know you're ripping the p*ss but I really expect this lad to kick on hugely. If he can get regular game time at Brentford he will get better and better. I can see him tearing it up in the Championship next season. It's a long time since I've seen a young Irish player with his ability to skin people and leave them for dead in the way he does. He's still a bit raw but you can see the more minutes of league action he plays, the better and more clinical he's becoming. He did the right thing in moving from Cork for that reason.

On the Nigeria/Ireland thing, I think it's first come first served. Unless he's getting game time soon, obviously can't call him straight into the Irish squad for Turkey game. I would love to see him at least go with the training squad though. These are the kind of situations Ireland need to get right going forward to tie players down. Imo, the nations league is the perfect competition to do such a thing and it's an awful shame MON is the man there for this opportunity.

I've often see him play 3 or 4 times, my thoughts exactly but you could see with the right coaching and the exposure of playing with/against better players he has plenty of potential to push on.

A call up to the under-21’s and perhaps a training camp with the senior squad could be a good shout.

Ogbene arguaby should have been called up to the Under-21’s last season.

Agree with you, seen almost every game he played last season and I've genuinely never seen a player improve and develop so quickly, was a completely different player by the end of the season and rang rings around the cork defense twice. Was a joke he never got called up to the U21's

What has that got to do with his abilities?

He is a decent player but Irish international? No chance.

On Ogbene diving, I'm not really sure where that comes from? Any decent winger who regularly takes lads on will get loads of frees awarded to him when nudged or pushed etc. while at full pace. I would actually say the opposite, Ogbene could have had far more impact in LOI games last year if the refs hadn't consistently let players hack at him. The amount of games where players hacked him down, and didn't receive a yellow until the 3rd or 4th cynical foul on him was comical.

The Championship is a real grind of a league, but if Ogbene gets game time regularly in the future, you'd expect the referees to be a small bit better and that will stand to him when he's taking defenders on.

I'd go as far as to say that if Cork signed him now, he'd be by far and away their best player. There's a reason why Brentford are signing him. He was a young fella when leaving Cork, and was smart enough not to wait around and maybe get some game time there. Really intelligent thing to move to a club where he was guaranteed minutes. Now look where that's got him and he's still a player with plenty of improvement in him if coached well.
