EUROPA: Omonia’s Uzoho gets praises for heroic goalkeeping

Nigeria’s Francis Uzoho, was in top form as his club, Omonia Nicosia, clashed with Manchester United in a UEFA Europa League match.

Uzoho trended on Twitter, for his great performance in the match and even caught the eyes of top footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Thierry Nyann tweeted, “Manchester United need something extra to beat Nigeria’s Francis Uzoho tonight.”

Meanwhile, Samuel Luckhurst recalled Uzoho’s role in Nigeria’s inability to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. He said, “An eventful 2022 for Uzoho, who’s gone from apologising for preventing Nigeria from qualifying for the World Cup to keeping United at bay for the best part of 50 minutes.”

The match ended in 1-0 in favour of the home team, Manchester United.
