Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has expressed his joy at stepping into the shoes of former Nigeria first-choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama.
The 19-year-old has been a consistent figure in Gernot Rohr’s side, since he made his debut against Argentina in November 2017.
Uzoho is set to start in goal, when the Eagles begin their 2018 World Cup campaign this Saturday against Croatia.
“My biggest hero for Nigeria remains Vincent and I always admire him.
“To think I was watching him at the last World Cup in Brazil, making that incredible save against Bosnia, to now getting a chance to follow in his footsteps is unbelievable.
“We have a good squad and I am mentally prepared and ready.”
