    Black players get racially abused by Europeans, but Africans, particularly Nigerians also abuse black players racially. What colour are Nigerians?

    It’s like most of you in this forum did not hear that during the half time break Uzoho refused to come into the pitch for the second half of the game against Ghana in Abuja. They had to beg him.

    Imagine what local goalkeepers face during league matches and having to still come back and keep for there teams. Liverpool goalkeeper messed up twice in this last season but they kept faith with him.

    Dennis Onyango who was once the best goalkeeper in Africa has serious issues with long range shots a la Okoye against Tunisia but the vociferousnreess of Nigerian Twitter and Instagram fans will not allow them to rest. UZOHO pls get over it and come back, it’s very difficult for tall goalkeepers to handle ground shots except this new U20 Nathaniel Nwosu who is doing well and besides the players let you down because the Ghanaians outnumbered the Eagles prior to the goal and OUR OWN did not even know when the Black Stars made personnel adjustments.

     
  • Uzoho is stilll my number one keeper any till now.

    Some of those people that are blaming him can’t keep a football shot from a primary school student.

     
    • Thank sir u just took it out of my mouth .even okoye is good to I don’t know what’s wrong with our people.
