After conceding again in Nigeria's World Cup Qualifier against Zimbabwe, fans have called for Uzoho to be banned from the team.
Nigerian football fans are furious that coach Jose Peseiro has continued to invite Francis Uzoho to the national team set-up.
The Omonia Nicosia goalkeeper has let Nigerians down on numerous occasions yet he keeps getting invites to feature in crucial games for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Super Eagles 1-1 Zimbabwe: 'Uzoho no get shame'-Reactions as Iheanacho rescues Nigeria from World Cup embarrassment
Nigerians are tired of Uzoho and this crop of Super Eagles players after another embarrassing draw against the Warriors of Zimbabwe

The end could be near for Jose Peseiro if he continues to play Francis Uzoho as the Super Eagles number one shot-stopper.
Uzoho’s howler (failing to punch away a long-range shot from Thomas Partey) against Ghana was one of the reasons the Super Eagles didn't participate at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Last month, during an international friendly with Saudi Arabia, Francis Uzoho produced another stinker, diverting a shot into his own net.
Super Eagles fan call for Uzoho’s ban
Nigeria faced Zimbabwe in a World Cup Qualifier and with the game goallless, the Warriors had a freekick from over 30 yards out. Captain Walter Musona went for power and fired the ball beyond Uzoho in the Nigerian goal post.
Reactions have continued to trail that goal, with many of the opinion that Uzoho should have done better to punch the ball away.
In the last seven games that Francis Uzoho, a reserve goalkeeper for his Cyprus-based team have manned the post for Niegeria, he has conceded on all seven occasions.
Many Nigerians have urged Jose Peseiro to find a better alternative (even from the Nigerian Professional Football League) to replace Uzoho as the Super Eagles’ number one shot-stopper.

Walter Musona scored a phenomenal long-range freekick for Zimbabwe against Nigeria but Francis Uzoho is not his only victim.

With just two games played in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Nigerians are already fed up with coach Jose Peseiro and have asked for an indigenous coach to take over from him.
See some reactions below;
The Super Eagles of Nigeria might appear to have a dearth of safe hands. Still, many believe that anyone else would do a better job than Francis Uzoho - in fact, they don’t want him anywhere near the Super Eagles setup again.
