Goalkeeper Francis Uzoho says he will “come back stronger” after the thigh injury he copped in an international friendly against Brazil on Sunday.
Nigeria received an injury scare during their 1-1 draw with Brazil as Francis Uzoho was stretchered off with a thigh problem after 62 minutes of play.
Uzoho sustained the knock after landing awkwardly in his attempt to save a goal-bound cross, and he was shown holding his thigh.
He was clearly in significant discomfort, with the 20-year-old goalkeeper eventually being stretchered off, to be replaced by debutant Maduka Okoye after a brief delay.
“A big thank you to you all 🙏🏽. I will be back stronger and better,” the Omonia Nicosia shot stopper tweeted.
The Deportivo La Coruna loanee is a doubt for Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualification games against Benin Republic and Lesotho in November.
