Rohr ready to send 20-year-old goalkeeper Uzoho to U-23

Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho is among the three players Coach Gernot Rohr could be sending to help the Dream Team VII achieve their AFCON qualification goal.

 


The Dream Team VII have a mountain to climb in their quest to overturn a two-goal deficit against Libya and may not find things easy, with first-choice goalkeeper Abubakar Adamu sent off just before half-time for handling the ball outside the area in the first leg on March 20.
It is looking likely that Francis Uzoho will be drafted into the Olympic squad and Rohr believes it will afford the goalkeeper the opportunity to get some minutes after his well-documented problems with his Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta.
 The coach, however, admitted that his goalkeeper made a costly blunder against Seychelles.
”Everybody can make a mistake, even you the journalist can make a mistake, so let’s understand it can happen. We won the game, it is not an important mistake.

”This Seychelles team also deserve to score a goal for their good defensive organization”.

Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray), Chidozie Awaziem (Porto), Valentine Ozornwafor, Ikouwem Udo (both Enyimba), Victor Osimhen (Charleroi) and Ndifreke Effiong (Akwa United) are the other players eligible to represent the Dream Team.
