 Super Eagles GK Uzoho Celebrates 20th Birthday With Another Clean Sheet For Elche
Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho kept a clean sheet as Elche defeated Real Zaragoza 2-0 at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero on Sunday evening in the Spanish Segunda División.

It was the second consecutive game Uzoho had not conceded a goal, starting from the 2-0 win against Malaga on his league debut on October 19.

Goals from Gonzalo Verdú and Nino proved to be enough for Elche to register their third win of the season, the visitors had a chance to reduce the deficit in the 87th minute but the Nigerian goalkeeper made a goal line save.

It was the first time this season that Elche have not conceded in two successive games thanks to their impressive Nigerian goalkeeper who celebrated his 20th birthday on Sunday, October 28.

Uzoho was unbeaten in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Seychelles and Libya in Uyo, bringing his total number of shutouts for club and country to four in six games.

The Deportivo de La Coruña loanee has been preferred in goal ahead of the veteran goalkeeper José Juan since he returned from international duty this month.
