Nigeria international goalkeeper Francis Uzoho who sustained a knee ligament in October has undergone successful surgery. The 20-year old suffered the injury after the hour mark during the Super Eagles' 1-1 friendly draw with Brazil in Singapore and had to be carried off on a stretcher.
"And it was a success. I'm grateful to every prayer and good wishes said. Even the hidden prayers said on my behalf," Uzoho wrote on social media. "I'm deeply grateful. Now let the healing begin."
