Ghana 0-0 Nigeria Fans rate Uzoho far better than Okoye

Super Eagles’ first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho impressive so much during the Ghana Fifa World Cup play-off on Friday that it has reawakened debate on who should be Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper amongst fans on social media.

In the absence of Sparta Rotherdam’s Maduka Okoye due to illness, the Cyprus based star was in goal against the Black Stars in Friday’s Fifa World Cup play-off.

Uzoho’s repaid coach Augustine Eguavoen’s confidence in him by making crucial saves as the African classic ended 0-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi.

That inspired football enthusiasts to storm social media to continue the unending debate on who should remain as first choice goalie of the 2013 African kings, with many rooting for the former Deportivo La Coruna player.

Some feel if Okoye had been in goal, Nigeria would have leaked at least three goals against Otto Addo’s side. Thus, they labelled the Sparta Rotterdam goalkeeper’s absence as a blessing in disguise.

Nothwithstanding, a few feels Okoye is better than Uzoho. See extracts of their comment from Twitter below:

Uzoho should retain that number 1 jersey.

He has improved, and he is far more commanding and assuring than Maduka Okoye

I especially love the confidence about him now, and the way he shouts at his defenders and commands his 18 yard box. #GHANIG

Uzoho >>>> Okoye ..man should never be benched for that model AGAIN. We tend to forget that Uzoho manned the sticks for Nigeria at the last world cup. He’s experienced & very calm. #GHANIG
