Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has called up Francis Odinaka Uzoho who plays for Deportivo La Coruna, for their upcoming matches against Algeria and Argentina.

 

The 18-year-old’s invitation was confirmed by the La Liga side via their official Twitter handle.

 

Uzoho ‎is in the team as cover following concerns over the form and fitness of current first-choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

 

The former U-17 goalkeeper has kept in two La Liga games for Deportivo La Coruna, but interim coach of the team has relegated him to the role of third-choice goalkeeper.

 

On Sunday, he was in action for the B team in the third tier of Spanish football.

 

Nigeria will play Argentina in a friendly on November 14, four days after taking on Algeria in their final 2018 World Cup qualifier.
