World Cup: 19-Year Old Uzoho Speaks On Replacing Enyeama As Super Eagles Goalkeeper SPORTS

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has expressed his joy at stepping into the shoes of former Nigeria first-choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama.

The 19-year-old has been a consistent figure in Gernot Rohr’s side, since he made his debut against Argentina in November 2017.

Uzoho is set to start in goal, when the Eagles begin their 2018 World Cup campaign this Saturday against Croatia.

“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.”
