Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has admitted that the Super Eagles gained lessons from their 2-1 defeat to England in Saturday’s international friendly played at the Wembley Stadium, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Uzoho failed to keep a second clean sheet in action for Nigeria in the encounter as he was beaten twice in the first half by Gary Cahill and Harry Kane, but he thanks the Nigeria fans who backed the team throughout the encounter at the Wembley Stadium.
“Not the result wanted but at least we gained something. Thanks to the fans for support and cheering us up throughout. In Christ Alone,” the 19 year old wrote via his Instagram page @Uzoho4sure.
The former Aspire Academy player has made five international appearances for the Super Eagles and has kept only one clean sheet conceding five goals.
Uzoho is expected to be Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
