Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, says his father never supported him playing football, adding that he got flogged anytime he disobeyed his advice.
The national team first choice made this known during a live Instagram chat with ng_supereagles on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old made his Nigeria debut on November 14, 2017, replacing Daniel Akpeyi in a 4–2 friendly win against Argentina and has since gone on to play 14 times rimes for the Eagles.
“My dad was against me playing football because education was the priority in our family,” Uzoho said. (Text and photo courtesy Punch)
