Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Odinakachukwu Uzoho is disappointed by the fact that he wouldn’t take part in Saturday’s AFCON Qualifier against South Africa in Johanessburg but says that his spirit is with the team.
Uzoho who spoke to DiegwuSports on Monday via whatsapp said:
‘I am sad not to be part of the team that will take on SA on Saturday because of my injury. I am there in Spirit. I will be monitering every development there and will be in contact with the boys.’
Uzoho backed his teamates to go on and get the win even in his absence and that of key players because of injury.
‘I am very confident we will win on Saturday in Johanesburg. Yes we have a few players out due to injury but the players in camp are highly motivated and am very confident we will get all three points. If they can come to Naija and beat us, then we can as well go there and beat them’
Nigeria will take on South Africa on Saturday at the National Stadium, Johanesburg. A win for Nigeria will clinch automatic qualification for next years AFCON to be held in Cameroun.
