Uzoho keeps a clean sheet on full APOEL debut

Francis Uzoho kept a clean slate on his debut for APOEL in Wednesday’s 4-0 triumph over PAEEK in a Cypriot Cup fixture.

The game against the second division outfit saw him return from a long injury layoff that spanned over one year.

At the Makareio Stadium, goals from Kostas Apostolakis, Omer Atzili, Morocco’s Anuar Tuhami and Stavros Gavriel powered the 28-time Cypriot Championship winners past Makis Sergides’ men.

Uzoho suffered ruptured ligaments and was carried off on a stretcher after the hour mark during the Super Eagles’ 1-1 international friendly draw with Brazil on October 13, 2019 at the National Stadium, Singapore.

Since then, he has been on the sidelines that kept him off Nigerian duty – missing two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers versus Benin Republic and Lesotho plus the recent friendlies with reigning African kings Algeria and Tunisia.

After loan spells at Elche, Anorthosis and Omonia, the 22-year-old joined the Cypriot outfit on a three-year deal from Spanish second division club Deportivo La Coruna.

The towering shot-stopper commenced his European career at Deportivo after he was scouted while in action for Aspire Academy.
