Francis Uzoho, a Nigerian professional footballer who plays for Omonia on Friday, welcomed a baby with his wife.
The 21-year-old AC Omonia goalkeeper shared the photo of his newborn and wife from the hospital bed on his Instagram page and he’s been receiving tons of congratulatory messages from families, friends and well-wishers.
Uzoho represented Nigeria under-17s at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. Aged only 14, he was an immediate backup to Dele Alampasu.
In October 2017 Uzoho received his first call-up to the Nigerian senior squad. He made his full international debut on 14 November, replacing Daniel Akpeyi in a 4–2 friendly win against Argentina.
He was named in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. By that time he was considered Nigeria’s first-choice goalkeeper.
