Deportivo Goalkeeper Gets Super Eagles Call Up

Former junior international Francis Uzoho has received his first ever Super Eagles call up ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Algeria on November 10 and the high profile international friendly with Argentina in Russia on November 14.

Deportivo La Coruna shot stopper Uzoho celebrated his Spanish La Liga debut with a clean sheet against Eibar two weeks ago and was also in goal last weekend as his side suffered a 2-1 defeat to lowly Catalan club Girona.

Uzoho’s Super Eagles invitation was confirmed by his Spanish club via their official Twitter handle.

Francis Uzoho came into prominence as a member of the Nigeria U17 team that emerged victorious at the FIFA U17 World Cup UAE 2013. He joined Deportivo La Coruna from Aspire Academy at the start of the current season.
