Newly invited Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has described his recent inclusion with the senior National team of Nigeria as a “dream come true”.
Uzoho was recently invited to Super Eagles camp after he made his first team debut for Spanish La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna against Eibar.
His performances against Eibar and Girona drew worldwide attention which prompted Super Eagles gaffer Gernot Rohr to invite him for the matches against Algeria and Argentina.
The 18-year-old goaltender who spoke through a video posted on the official twitter handle of the Super Eagles @NGSuperEagles said: “This is a dream come true for me. I am so privileged to be here, it motivates me to work harder than I was doing before and I also want to thank my supporters in Nigeria, I’m very glad their support means a lot to me.”
Uzoho was part of the 2013 victorious Golden Eaglets side that conquered the World in UAE, alongside Kelechi Iheanacho and Taiwo Awoniyi.
