Super Eagles first-choice goalkeeper Francis Uzoho is out of Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against South Africa later in November.
Uzoho is expected to be between the post for Nigeria when they take on South Africa in Soweto on Saturday, November 17.

He suffered a ‘heavy concussion’ in the same match and was rushed to the clinic where he was examined and discharged. Elche said via their twitter handle, “Francis Uzoho has suffered a heavy concussion at the party today and has been transferred to the San Rafael clinic.

“After the tests performed no bone injury has been appreciated and has been discharged. Additional tests will be held tomorrow in Elche (sic).The club later revealed that Uzoho would be out for four weeks as a result of rib fracture.
