Rohr said the 20-year old goal-keeper who criticized for his shaky performance in the reversed fixture of Nigeria’s encounter with Mediterranean of Libya in Sfax.
“Uzoho wanted to show his qualities to the critics in South Africa. But the injury has stopped that but I know he will bounce back. He is a strong boy with a positive character”, Rohr stated.
