Super Eagles legend Vincent Enyeama has stated emphatically that he won’t blame goalkeeper Francis Uzoho for Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Following a 1-1 draw against Ghana on Tuesday night, 29 March, in Abuja, the Super Eagles lost the chance to appear in their seventh World Cup which will hold later this year.
Francis Uzoho’s blunder in the first half gave the Black Stars the lead as the Nigerian goalkeeper was unable to save the shot fired by Thomas Partey.
However, Super Eagles came back into the game through Troost-Ekong’s penalty, but they were unable to score the winner against their opponents.
According to the report on Complete Sports, Vincent Enyeama explained that there is no need to apportion blame as he stressed for the Super Eagles to move on.
“It’s sad that everybody was talking about goalkeeping before the game. These guys have to go through massive pressure to live up to the billing.
“Everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Uzoho, everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Akpeyi and Okoye which is very difficult and putting massive pressure on the young lads,” Enyeama said.
