Gernot Rohr Demotes Goalkeeper Uzoho & Others To U-23 Team
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has sent the first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho and three others to the U-23 team
Uzoho, whose error led to the only goal scored by Seychelles in Nigeria’s 3-1 win in their final AFCON 2019 qualifier, will start for the U-23 on Monday, with their first choice goalkeeper Abubakar Adamu suspended following his red card in the first leg.
The trio of Valentine Ozornwafor, Victor Osimhen and Chidozie Awaziem have also been asked to join the squad, ahead of the return leg of their U23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya.
Nigeria trail 2-0 going into the second leg.
The four players have been informed of the development and will depart the camp of the team by tomorrow.
