    Better than uzoh by far. Have watched him since start at Giwa fc

    • Baba how many goals has Uzoho conceded in the last 3 internationals. Not more than 2 if I am not mistaking in the last 2 he conceded 1. .. that is not a bad return considering our Defence is like a plastic bad with holes trying to retain water. My man you people should start reasoning better. And while you looking at goals conceded why not also look at important saves he made. Ungrateful Nigerians supporting rubbish.

      That’s why this government keeps dribbling us like Maradona and Pele combined. Because you people will never see the picture that is starring at you glaringly In the face.
