“Uzoho did very well despite losing 2 – 0 on the night. He should remain focused and not allow the defeat weigh him down.

“I have been encouraging him (Uzoho) because I see him as a younger brother as he did his best but the two goals he conceded were not chances anyone would say he should have saved.”

Ezenwa concluded by drawing on the positives from the match which he described has been the fact that no injuries were recorded while still stating he was ready any time he gets called upon because he still dreams of playing a World Cup game.
