Nigerians blast goalkeeper Uzoho for conceding a free kick from 35-yards against Zimbabwe

The Super Eagles of Nigeria find themselves trailing against the Warriors of Zimbabwe after Francis Uzoho, the much-criticized goalkeeper, conceded a goal from long range.

The Nigerian national team embarked on a journey to Zimbabwe with the aim of revitalizing their World Cup qualification campaign, following a disappointing draw against Lesotho in Uyo.

Nigeria’s current first-choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has faced heavy criticism due to a series of subpar performances for the Super Eagles. Despite the calls for him to be replaced, coach Jose Peseiro has continued to place his trust in the Omonia Nicosia player.

Once again, Uzoho has fallen short and provided ammunition for his critics as he was unable to stop a long-range shot from Walter Musona’s free-kick, struck from 35 yards out. Now, Peseiro’s team faces the challenge of not only equalizing but securing a victory.

While it’s still early in the qualifying stages, a win is crucial considering the dynamics of the group and Nigeria’s absence from the Qatar 2022 World Cup. It’s worth noting that Uzoho was also involved in Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the Gulf World Cup, as his mistake allowed a Thomas Partey shot during the playoffs against Ghana.


Reactions to the Goal:

In response to the conceded goal, Nigerians have not waited for the final outcome and have flooded social media with their discontent about Uzoho’s consistent presence in the national team. The frustration among fans is palpable as they express their concerns about the goalkeeper’s performance.
