Nigeria will take on Argentina today, and Francis Uzoho who was on the bench for the 1 – 1 draw against Algeria on Friday is heavily tipped to be between the post against the Argentines.

He did his chances a whole lot of good during the teams last training Monday evening, posting a string of impressive performance during drills with the goalkeeper trainer.

Nineteen year old Uzoho impressed with his reading of ball across the box, same thing Ikechukwu Ezenwa struggled with against Algeria in the 1 – 1 draw on Friday.

His reflex was also sharp during shooting drills although goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi also showed flashes of the form that has seen him earn rare reviews for PSL side Chippa United, the last few months.

Earlier, Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, had hinted at dropping Ezenwa, stating that “It will be interesting to see another goalkeeper. We have to work hard to be better.”
