The coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has pointed out the qualities he likes in goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho who made his debut for Nigeria against Argentina on Tuesday.
Nigeria won the game 4-2 with Uzoho keeping a clean sheet in the game after replacing Daniel Akpeyi who conceded both goals after the half time break.
The Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper who has just two La-Liga games to his name will however be given more games with the senior national team of Nigeria, as he has clearly impressed with the coach of the team.
“He has a big personality and that is very important for the defenders. When you play with a keeper like Uzoho it is easy for the players around him. He is young and commands his area well and it is very good to have a keeper like that.” the coach told a source close to the team.
” He also uses the ball very well, all his deliveries from the back against Argentina went to one of our players . He is good at it with both feet. Something some outfield players can’t boast of, he is a modern day goalkeeper but he still has some works to do”, Rohr concluded.
