Francis Uzoho injury is the perfect opportunity for Daniel Akpeyi

Francis Uzoho has firmly become Nigeria’s number one goalkeeper, ending months of instability in that department.


However, concerns over his abilities came to the fore after a below-par performance in the narrow 3-2 victory over Libya in last month’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

He's now been denied the chance to redeem himself, after picking up an injury in Elche's 5-1 drubbing by Cadiz in the Spanish Segunda Division at the weekend.

His showing in that match - where he conceded four goals in 12 minutes - prompted criticism from fans for another poor performance, although he now faces four weeks on the sidelines.

With the Super Eagles set to face South Africa in their next Afcon qualifier, coach Gernot Rohr is just left with Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Theophilus Afelokhai as his options between the sticks.
