Super Eagles Team-mates Congratulate Uzoho As He Looks To "Enjoy Great Success" With New Club APOEL

Super Eagles stars, Moses Simon, William Troost-Ekong, Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidozie Awaziem, Oghenekaro Etebo, Samuel Kalu, Daniel Akpeyi, Henry Onyekuru, Taiwo Awoniyi and John Ogu, have all congratulated Francis Uzoho on his transfer to Cypriot giants, APOEL Nicosia.

Super Falcons striker and Dijon new signing, Desire Oparanozie, also felicitated with the 21-year-old goalkeeper, who, in a statement on his way page on Friday, expressed his delight at the move that will see him feature in the UEFA Europa League next year.

Uzoho, who joined the famed club from Deportivo La Coruna of Spain on a three-year contract, said that he was looking to enjoy great success with them.

"Happy to start a new journey today with this great club, hope to enjoy great success along the way. In Christ alone", stated the Aspire Academy product who took time to respond to most of the comments from his fans.

Uzoho played the 2019–2020 season at another Cypriot side, Omonia on Loan from Deportivo La Coruna, who also previously farmed him out to Elche and Anorthosis Famagusta.

He will be playing the next three years at APOEL, who will play in the Europa League first qualifying round, after they finished third on the league table before the Cypriot First Division was declared null and void because of the pandemic.

Uzoho represented Nigeria at U17 level and has been capped 14 times by the Super Eagles.
