Uzoho Stake Claim For First Choice.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has sent one of the team’s goalkeeper trainers, Pionetti Enrico to team up with young shot-stopper Francis Uzoho in Spain.

Despite the plethora of options and talents in the Super Eagles setup, the goalkeeping department remains a grey area for the German tactician who has acknowledged, severally, its lack of depth.

Recently, Rohr ruled out a return for former team captain, Vincent Enyeama – whose last top-flight action came in January 2017.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi remain the country’s viable option to Russia 2018 World Cup and Rohr’s recent move shows he is willing to trust the Deportivo La Coruna youngster to complete the required goalkeeping trio to the event.
