Uzoho Nominated For La Liga 2 MVP Award

By Johnny Edward:

 

Francis Uzoho has been nominated alongside four other players for Most Valuable Player of match day 10 in the La Liga 2 division following his heroics for Elche last Friday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

 

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Uzoho is up against Real Oviedo’s Saúl Berjón, Juan Domínguez from CF Reus Deportiu and Las Palmas striker, Sergio Araujo according to the official website of the Spanish La Liga, www.laliga.es.

 

The 19 year old Nigerian international, Uzoho kept a clean sheet on his debut for Elche and made four outstanding saves last Friday as his team recorded a 2-0 win over Malaga.

 

Lozano Neyder put the home side in front in the 36th minute before Martinez Borja scored a 63rd minute goal to close the encounter.

 

The victory was the second win of the season for Elche who 17th in the La Liga 2 table with 11 points from ten games.

 

Uzoho joined Elche on a season loan deal from Deportivo de la Coruna, a Segunda division side where he made his breakthrough last season in goal for playing for the youth side.

 

Uzoho’s performance may earn him another starting role when Elche host Real Zaragoza in their next game on Sunday.

 

Recall that the former Aspire academy shot-stopper was in goal for Nigeria who defeated Libya over two legs in a 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifier.

      You have a Big problem! If you think people’s opinion is hatred. You are full of causing confusion and drama I have told fans you need check up!

        Yoohhh….!!! Here they come….crawling out of their nests. Like savage vultures, they circle around hardworking young men who are braving the odds and making a name for themselves and proving good ambassadors for the nation in the European football circus, always hurling insults at them at the slightest opportunity, they then turn round to claim they only ‘critisize them constructively’. I dont have problems with that…so far they can stomach my own ‘constructive criticism’ of their ‘constructive criticisms’. Just like I said earlier…pieces of news like this never makes them happy, the lie in wait for the fall of our sons like Odinaka, so tht they can have a field day. One bad day in office and they will start clamouring for the return of Peter Rufai and Ike shorunmu to the national team.
        They know themselves….!!!

  • this guy is too young to man our post. oga rohr shld let ezemwa start or wat do u think? and 2nd iheanacho should start and play etebo role as cm. wat u pipu think? etebo is inexperience playing behind iwobi and alongside ndidi. our last game said it all. almost in 6 occassions iwobi replicate epl game to connect wit etebo to penetrate libyan defence but etebo dont understand and make poor descision by passin to someone else all de time and dictate de tempo of de game. iwobi pass to etebo and ran behind marker to expect de pass back but etebo pass it to another side. to me iheanacho love such a connecting and penetrating games. and good in tackling. and his free kicks is also an additional. watch etebo game he wil never connect wit someone to open defence. and wen iwobi try it etebo chose another part.

      Nice observation. Etebo for me should not be starting games when the likes of Ogu is around. I marvel at how people hype the dude.

  • He is on the rise. Nice one. Keep working hard you are on an upward trajectory.

  • British born nigerian players have pledge their allegience to play for the super eagles. Everton Lookman Ademola, Liverpool, Semi Ojo andBoby Adekanye, QPR” Ebere Eze and Tottenhan” Josh Onoma Mr. Rohr and nff are still sleeping instead of inviting this players to train with the super eagles and also start to work on their change of allegience. England are trying to convince this players to change their mind and play for three Lions

    • Of all these Ebere Eze has trained with the Super Eagles. I’d take him as backup to Iwobi as number 10, that’s the one attacking position we seem to have no backup connecting with our front 4 (left wing, right wing and centre forward).
      We have plenty of options on left wing and right wing

  • @isaac yes thank for complimenting me ndidi perform great wen ever ogu is wit him like senegal match. etebo is inexperience he is not good wit ndidi and also not good wit iwobi. etebo has wat it takes to be best player, bt he need to be descipline and understand. i just need two changes for de next startin lineup ogu for etebo and success for kalu.
