Francis Uzoho’s injury has caused some Super Eagles supporters to panic ahead of upcoming Assignments.
The goalkeeper trainer of the team, Ike Shoronmu believes there is no need for this as a competent goalkeeper will be selected for the country ahead of November Afcon qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
Speaking to local media, the 2002 World Cup goalkeeper said: “Uzoho’s injury should not create panic that would make other goalkeepers in the Super Eagles feel they are not good enough.
I believe the coaches’ know all the goalkeepers’ worth and how to use any of them.
Any goalkeeper invited to the Super Eagles by all standards should be among the best in the country, so I see no reason for apprehension when the number one goalkeeper is injured.” He concluded.
