    Definitely, Francis Uzoho seems to be the best Nigerian goalkeeper at the moment, He should be made the Super Eagles number one choice goalkeeper in Russia if Nigeria intends to go far in the tournament in the absence of Cyril Ikeme.

    The second and third goalkeeper choices to the mundial are still up for grabs with Ezenwa likely taken one of the two remaining spots if he maintains his current form.

  • When this guy is actually tried in goal for Nigeria in the forthcoming friendly matches, that’s high time to celebrate his emergence, otherwise you will put cat before horse.

    That’s great news.
    Keep working hard man. I love your composure and the level of your accurate ball distribution from the the goalmouth.
    You are better than Ruben Martinez.
    It’s due to the European antics in ⚽ you ain’t keeping the goal for deportivo first team.
    Up super eagles.
