New Nigeria Goalie Uzoho Arrives Morocco But Misses First Training Session

Newly invited Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho has arrived Morocco to team up with the senior national team of Nigeria ahead of their upcoming games against Algeria and Argentina.
Uzoho arrived Morocco from Spain few minutes after 4pm, hence missing out on their first training session ahead of Friday’s game against Algeria in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers.

The dead rubber tie might come too soon for the recently turned 19 year old who has just two La-Liga games to his name for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.

He will however begin his push for a spot in the team against the likes of Ikechukwu Ezenwa who is presently in training with the rest of the players who arrived earlier and Daniel Akpeyi who is still being expected at the time of filing in this report.

A total of 20 players are presently training under the watchful eyes of coach Gernot Rohr who is expected to make a decision on who will be in goal against Algeria on Friday and also against Argentina in four days time.
