 Uzoho Relishes Seychelles, Egypt Challenge.

Super Eagles goal tender, Francis Uzoho is looking forward to donning the national colours again for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles and the friendly against Egypt .

Uzoho who missed the Eagles last games against South Africa and Uganda due to rib injury was among the squad named for the games.

“Can’t wait to wear this colours again. It has always been an honour,” reads the message Uzoho posted beneath a picture of himself on Instagram.

Uzoho joined Cypriot giants Anorthosis Famagusta on a six-month loan from Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna on a six months loan deal after he lost his place in Elche.

The 20-year-old Nigeria international made his debut for the Super Eagles as a second-half substitute in an international friendly against Argentina in 2017 and made 12 appearances keeping five clean sheets.

Nigeria top Group E with ten points from five matches, a point ahead of second-placed South Africa.

The three-time African champions are already through to next year’s tournament to be hosted by Egypt in June
