Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has returned to training with LaLiga 2 side Elche after recovering from an injury he suffered early last month, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 20-year-old was injured in his side’s 5-1 loss to Cadiz on the 4th of November, forcing him to miss Nigeria’s AFCON qualifier against South Africa in Johannesburg and the friendly against Uganda in Asaba.
He, however, confirmed his return on his Instagram page after posting a picture of him in training with the caption “I am back in business. In Christ alone”.
Uzoho’s return will come as a boost for head coach Pacheta who will be happy to have the Nigerian back in goal with his side failing to win any of their three matches he missed.
The young lad has kept two clean sheets in three league matches but could, however, sit out Saturday’s clash against Cordoba. He should be in contention for next weekend’s home clash against Sporting Gijon.
