Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, will today (Monday) knows his fate regarding the police probe into an alleged forged document in the clearance of papers issued to him by Spanish second division side Deportivo La Coruna to Cypriot club Famagusta.

Uzoho look set to receive another obstacle in his efforts to get his career back on track, following a pathetic loan spell at Elche in Spain’s second division, as his focus and concentration at Famagusta are sure to be affected by the development. In his drive to have regular action, Uzoho, who manned the goal post for Nigeria at the Russia 2018 World Cup, opted for the move to Cypriot club Famagusta but the document regarding his health certificate is believed to be counterfeit which prompted a police invitation. Uzoho had posted a brilliant performance which prevented Apollon from scoring against him the previous week.

Apollon then alleged that Uzoho’s health certificate, which was issued to him just before his competitive debut for Anorthosis on February 2, was a counterfeit a development which forced Cyprus police to wade in. The 20-year-old was invited for questioning by the police on Thursday, with a verdict on the matter scheduled for Monday (today).
