Former Golden Eaglets goalkeeper Francis Uzoho hailed a memorable Deportivo La Coruna debut after keeping a clean sheet in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Eibar.
“A day that will never disappear from my memory – my debut – thanks all for the support,” he said.
BBC Sport reports that Uzoho is the youngest foreign goalkeeper to ever play in La Liga.
Uzoho follows in the footsteps of Wilfred Agbonavbare and Peter Rufai as Nigerian goalkeepers to have played in the Spanish top flight.
“He is only 18 and he can barely speak Spanish but I know what he can offer this club,” the coach says.
