Likely Super Eagles first choice keeper to this year’s FIFA World Cup, Francis Uzoho was at the receiving end for Spanish side, Real Club Deportivo Fabril as they lost 3-1 to Celta Vigo II in a Segunda B Group 1 game.

The Nigerian keeper conceded three Goals at the Ciudad Deportiva de Abegondo – Campo 2 on Saturday evening.

Uzoho who was making his 22nd appearance for the Spanish side has never been scored by that number of goals since turning professional in 2017.

The least he has conceded is two.

Following Saturday’s loss, Uzoho has now conceded 17 goals, and kept 12 clean sheets this season.

The 19-year old who made his debut for the Super Eagles in last year’s friendly against Argentina has also conceded two goals in Nigeria’s friendly against Serbia last month.

He is one of the goalkeepers that has been listed to be visited by Eagles keeper trainer, Enrico Pionetti soon for further assessment ahead of the World Cup.

Elsewhere, Super Eagles vice captain, Ogenyi Onazi failed to make his expected return for Trabzonspor who lost 2-0 at home to Sivasspor in Turkey.
