Oguchi Onyewu’s move to Sheffield Wednesday is looking like a stroke of genius right about now.
For the second straight week, Onyewu made an impact for the Owls but this time it came via a game-winning goal in an FA Cup tilt with fourth division Rochdale. Onyewu scored the winner in the 57th minute of the 2-1 triumph, and also helped Sheffield Wednesday finish off the game after they were reduced to 10 men because of a second yellow card to defender Joe Mattock.
Onyewu, who netted his first goal in a Sheffield Wednesday jersey by burying a shot from close range, turned in a 90-minute shift that should help him as he attempts to make it onto the U.S. Men’s National Team for the World Cup this summer.
Sheffield Wednesday’s win over Rochdale moved Onyewu and the Owls into the fifth round of the competition.
What do you think of Onyewu’s winner vs. Rochdale? Do you see him sneaking onto the USMNT’s World Cup roster? Wishing he would have made move to Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the season?
