Super Eagles shot-stopper set for Apoel debut

Nigeria international Francis Uzoho will not be waiting much longer before making his debut for Apoel Nicosia after recovering fully from injury that has kept him out of action for close to a year, reports.

The Super Eagles goalkeeper suffered a ligament injury during his country’s international friendly outing against five-time world champions Brazil in Singapore back in October last year.

The 21-year-old, who is yet to make an official appearance for Apoel Nicosia since he joined the Cypriot outfit on a three-year deal from Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna, was on the bench in the club’s goalless draw away at Ermis Aradippou last weekend.

The former Elche goalkeeper could not hide his joy on the new development as he took to his social media account to give glory to God almighty. He also expressed appreciation to everyone who helped him back to full fitness, including Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr for the care.

“What more can i say but thank you God. A big thank you to everyone who helped me throughout this journey back to full fitness, my surgeon to the physiotherapist in Depor, Omonioa and Apoel, my family and to all my fans through your prayers and well wishes. Also to Super Eagles coach and his crew for constantly checking up on me. IN CHRIST ALONE,” he said via his Instagram account.
