Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has begun fitness training according to Head Coach Gernot Rohr who also revealed that Nigeria’s number one would return to action soon.
Rohr in an interview with AOIFootball also said that he has been keeping a close update on all his players ahead of March AFCON qualifiers, and added that Uzoho is on the right part but doubts if he [Uzoho] will be ready for the double header against Sierra Leone next month.
“For the recovery of Uzoho, we have good news. He is working in the fitness room and given more strength on his knee and leg. He cannot for the moment undergo training with everybody but he is on the right path,” Rohr revealed.
The on-loan Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper picked up a knee injury in Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against Brazil last October and has been out for the last three months.
