Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, had a brief session with the team’s physiotherapist before joining the rest of his colleagues during Monday’s training at the Stade Taieb Mhiri, Sfax, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Uzoho, CSN scooped from a reliable source who is with the team in their Sfax base in Tunisia that the young goalkeeper is fully fit but the move was taken to put him in proper shape ahead of the game.
“He (Uzoho) is not injured that I can authoritatively confirm. He looked ok last night. I think he just needed to stretch some things and nothing more,” the source revealed to CSN.
“He later joined the rest of his colleagues in training and was comfortable all through.”
The 19 year-old has kept a clean sheet in his last two games for the Super Eagles putting up a fine performance in the last game against Libya.
Uzoho, who made his Super Eagles debut in a friendly encounter against Argentina in November 2017 has been capped 10 times by Nigeria.
The Mediterranean Knights versus Super Eagles clash will kick-off at 7pm Nigerian time this evening.
