Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has tendered an apology for his social media post that berated supporters who criticized him for a string of poor performances in Nigeria’s international friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Mozambique in Portugal, reports Prime Business Africa.

The Apoel Nicosia custodian was at fault for the four goals conceded by the team and that understandably drew the ire of the Nigerian fans who questioned his continued invitation to the national team at the expense of other emerging goalkeepers.

Uzoho, whose gaffe ultimately led to Thomas Partey’s goal denying Nigeria from qualification to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar took to Snapchat to express his dismay, tagging it: “do it if it’s easy. Make white man sign you.”

Those comments led to more damnimg criticisms of his performances leading to the public apology on his X account (formerly Twitter).

“It has come to my attention that my recent Snapchat has not been my best behaviour towards you all as my loyal fans. I apologize for this as it was not my intention to conduct myself in such a manner towards the fans who have supported and motivated me throughout my career,” Uzoho posted on X.

“Accepting criticism is part of my job and one that I often welcome from people who continue to support me. I accept your criticisms with the utmost respect and understanding that you all want me to do better,” the former youth international added.

Since the retirement of erstwhile Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, and subsequently Carl Ikeme, who unfortunately did not continue his career with Nigeria due to his fight against luekamia, the country is yet to unearth another gem between the sticks.
