Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has called up former Golden Eaglets goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, who plays for Deportivo La Coruna in Spain for the World Cup qualifier against Algeria and the international friendly match against Argentina. This is in his determination to get quality replacement for ailing Carl Ikeme,
Uzoho who made his debut two weeks ago against Eibar where he kept a clean sheet was also in goal in his club’s 2-1 loss to Girona who featured fellow Nigerian, Olanrewaju Kayode.
The gangling lad was a member of Nigeria’s Eaglets squad that won the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates in 2013.
Also invited to the 23-man squad is another former Golden Eaglet, Chidiebere Nwakali and RSC Anderlecht striker Henry Onyekuru.
