Enyeama: I’m not going to blame Uzoho for the Eagles’ failure to qualify for the Qatar Cup

Enyeama: I’m not going to blame Uzoho for the Eagles’ failure to qualify for the Qatar Cup.

Vincent Enyeama, a former Nigerian goalkeeper, has stated that he will not hold Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho responsible for Nigeria’s failure to qualify for Qatar 2022.

Francis Uzoho, who came in to replace the injured Maduka Okoye, committed a costly error that cost the Super Eagles the game.

In an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, Enyeama expressed his belief that Uzoho, Okoye, and Akpeyi would find it tough to fill his shoes.

“It’s  time for us to face the future and keep going forward.” On Channels Television, Enyeama remarked, “I don’t want to assign responsibility.”

“I listened to what George said the other time, that there will never be another Jay-Jay Okocha, just as there will never be another Vincent Enyeama, and that is the truth.

“You cannot truly appreciate what I achieved for Nigeria; only time will tell.”

 

“I’m going to say we’re going to have to make due with what we’ve got.” I didn’t witness much of the match, but the truth is that there is only one Vincent Enyeama, and all we have to do now is encourage and support him; these kids want confidence.

“It’s unfortunate that everyone was discussing goalkeeping before the game. These guys are under a lot of pressure to live up to their billing.

“Everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Uzoho, everyone wants another Vincent Enyeama in Akpeyi and Okoye, which is putting a lot of pressure on the young men.”

 

The Supper Eagles of Nigeria will not be at the 2022 FIFA world cup in Qatar after they failed to qualify through play off.

Following a 0-0 draw with Ghana in Kumasi on Friday, the Super Eagles hosted the Black Stars in Abuja in what turned out to be a lackluster performance by the Nigerian team.

On the away goal rule, the Black Stars qualified for the 2022 World Cup, which will be hosted by Qatar, at the expense of the Super Eagles, who are individually excellent but lackluster as a team.
