Deportivo La Coruna Hands Uzoho First Choice Spot After Exploits In Russia For Nigeria


Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper at the recently concluded World Cup 2018 in Russia Francis Odinaka Uzoho is back in training with relegated LaLiga side Deportivo La Coruna.


Uzoho kept in all of Nigeria’s three games at the World Cup as coach Gernot Rohr preferred him ahead of the experienced duo of Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi.

The 19 year old resumed training with Deportivo La Coruna yesterday with the club keen on retaining his service as other clubs have contacted them following his exploits in Russia for Nigeria.

Deportivo La Coruna have however assured Uzoho that he will remain with the first team and will no doubt challenge for the number one spot as opposed to last season, when he was mainly used by the B team who are campaigning in the third division in Spain.

Although he made two first team appearances in the LaLiga, he was more of a regular player with the B team but his exploits at the World Cup has earned him a permanent spot in the first team ahead of the start of next season.
