My dad flogged me anytime I played football – Uzoho

Super Eagle’s Goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, says his father never supported him playing football, adding that he got flogged anytime he disobeyed his advice.

The national team first choice made this known during a live Instagram chat with ng_supereagles on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old made his Nigeria debut on November 14, 2017, replacing Daniel Akpeyi in a 4–2 friendly win against Argentina and has since gone on to play 14 times rimes for the Eagles.

“My dad was against me playing football because education was the priority in our family,” Uzoho said.

“He flogged me anytime I went to play football. He often gave me Mathematics assignment just to keep me busy and prevent me from playing football.

“But I still found my out even if it was just for five minutes and I knew the implication.

“It was my coach back then that convinced my dad to allow me to pursue my career and he loosened up a bit, but that didn’t mean I still didn’t get beaten by him.

“Despite the amount of beating I received from my dad, I never stopped pursuing my career and I thank God for today.”

The Deportivo La Coruña keeper also talked on his 2013 U-17 World Cup experience, where he was an unused substitute, as the country won a fourth title.

“The 2013 U-17 World Cup was a big experience for me despite the fact that I didn’t get the chance to take part in the tournament,” he added.

“But I was happy seeing some quality players from other countries. It was a big moment for me and it taught me something that if I could be there at the World Cup, I could be anything that I wanted to be in the future.”
