Enyeama says Uzoho is not to Blame for Super Eagles Failure

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has revealed that he is not going to blame the goalkeeper Francis Uzoho for Nigeria’s inability to qualify for Qatar 2022. Francis Uzoho, who replaced injured Maduka Okoye, made a costly error that ultimately led to the goal that gave Ghana the advantage over the Super Eagles.

Vincent Enyeama in an interview on Wednesday said he feels it would be difficult for Uzoho, Okoye, and Akpeyi to step into his shoes. According to him, he said: “It is time we face the future and keep moving. I don’t want to apportion blame,” he concluded.

He also said: “I listened to what George also said the other time we cannot have another Jay-Jay Okocha same that we cannot have another Vincent Enyeama, it is the truth.” He said what he did for Nigeria no one comprehend, it’s time that will tell. “I’m going to say we have to do with what we have. I didn’t see what happened during the match but the truth is that there’s only one Vincent Enyeama and we only have to encourage and support them, these guys need confidence.”

The former Lille goalkeeper also said it is sad that everybody was talking about goalkeeping before the game. These guys have to go through massive pressure to live up to the billing. He said everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Uzoho, everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Akpeyi and Okoye which is very difficult and puts massive pressure on the young goalkeepers.
