Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has revealed that he is mentally prepared and ready for the World Cup tournament in Russia.
Uzoho, 19, was speaking about the tournament in an interview with the BBC as he disclosed that former Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama is his role model.
In his words, Uzoho said: “It’s been like a dream and sometimes I just continue to thank God for everything and the coaches for the opportunity.”
“My biggest hero for Nigeria remains Vincent Enyeama [the country’s most capped player with 101 appearances] 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.” He concluded.
