Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has defended his age, stating his looks changed as a result of training.
Uzoho, 21, has come under intense criticism in recent times from a section of the fans who believe he lied about his original age.
The Omonia Nicosia of Cyprus goalie stated that those criticising him don’t know him when he was growing up, revealing he had a small stature.
“I was smallish back then in 2013 when I participated at the World Cup with the U-17 national team,” Uzoho told Super Eagles media in an Instagram chat.
“I later went to Aspire academy where I learnt a lot. My looks and body build changed when I started using the gym and was working out seriously.
“If a lot of people see my picture back then they won’t even talk about my age, but I don’t really bother because they don’t know me.”
Uzoho was the Super Eagles first-choice goalkeeper at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where the three-time African champions were eliminated at the group stage.
The goalkeeper, who has 14 caps for Nigeria, was part of Gernot Rohr’s squad that finished third at the 2019.
