Uzoho speaks on becoming Super Eagles no 1 keeper


Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has expressed joy on becoming Super Eagles no one goal keeper.

Uzoho who made his first debut in November 2017 told BBC that stepping into the shoes of former goal keeper Vincent Enyeama still feels like a dream to him.

Uzoho said

“It’s been like a dream and sometimes I just continue to thank God for everything and the coaches for the opportunity,” Uzoho told BBC Sport.

“My biggest hero for Nigeria remains Vincent and I always admire him.

“To think I was watching him at the last World Cup in Brazil, making that incredible save against Bosnia, to now getting a chance to follow in his footsteps is unbelievable.

“I have faced some tough players in La Liga and some friendly games, I believe I still have a lot to do in my career.

“We have a good squad and I am mentally prepared and ready.”
