Uzoho, Super Eagles Goalkeeper States His Ambitions Towards Next Season

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has vowed to bounce back from a bad year, when he returns to Cyprus for a loan spell with Omonia Nicosia from Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.

The 20-year-old endured a torrid time earlier this year, after a loan spell at Cypriot rivals Anorthosis Famagusta, was cut short due to irregularities in his registration.

Uzoho was also sent off for the first time in his career in April.

A lack of top-flight football cost him his place as Nigeria’s first-choice keeper ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, becoming the third choice behind Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

I learned a lot from last season’s experience. Hopefully, it will serve as a motivation to do well.

“I can say last season is in the past now and I hope to write a good chapter with Omonia by God’s grace and hard work.

“To move forward you can’t keep looking back, so I just want to remain focused on what lies ahead,Uzoho told BBC Sport.
