Francis Uzoho is in a good position to man the Super Eagles goal in the team’s back-to-back 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya.

The three-time African champions will first take on the Libyans on Saturday, 13 October, at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, before confronting them in the reverse fixture in Tunisia.

Nigeria cannot afford to drop more points in the qualifiers, having lost 2-0 at home to South Africa in their group opener in 2017.

And Concise News understands that the Elche shot stopper, who manned Nigeria’s goal at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, has outwitted Daniel Akpeyi and Ike Ezenwa in training.

It was learned that Uzoho was taken through the paces and he appeared more composed than the two other goalies.
