Uzoho was on fire in that last game.

Uzoho seems to be learning extremely fast, his confidence in the air and in the box is both impressive and a good sign. He still has many faults, but the rate of growth is unheard of. Uzoho is no1 for me. For good or bad.

Let's just hope we don't crucify this gem of a goalie if he has a bad cup due to age and limited experience.

Uzoho is going to cause some heart flutters if he starts at the WC

He seems to have a problem making clean catches. That’s a weakness that teams will try to exploit. The guy is clearly not ready yet but he may the best option at this pt

That is why i am asking for caution, because people will set their expectations so high and when it comes crashing down, they start looking for scapegoats!

Anyone who expects these folks to perform extra ordinary feat beyond their level of development should be handed over to the NDLEA for smoking dangerous hallucinogenic substance!

I read somewhere someone boasting that this team can hang out with the likes of Brasil, Germany etc..I had to look out of the window to confirm what time of the day it is :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I saw that as well and like you said - Chief Yujam - it certainly is a problem. Players of other teams will be looking forward to utilizing the weakness, easy goals against us, I might say

You guys need to shut up. Was Enyeama perfect???We all know he was called Vampire Enyeama because he had problems with crosses. Even up until 2014 WC he still had problems dealing with long balls and crosses. Peter Rufai didn't make clean catches as well and it cost us vs Argentina in 1994 but guess what, they were the best we had for a long time. Instead of putting Uzoho down, you should encourage him to get better. At 19 he is well on his way to becoming a top GK. No GK is perfect. BTW he has played vs the likes of Argentina, Poland and Serbia and has only conceded 2 goals. I say he is good to go.

Biggest part of goal keeping is confidence. And a young keeper needs ALL the confidence in the world. If Uzoho has it, we'll be fine. The boys just need to get him there.

I don't have any expectations for this WC. I am hoping for the best.

He has all the tools. Big, athletic and agile. The rest is coachable. If he is ready, he starts. If not....

I see too many inexperienced parts to his game in this one video. If he keeps pushing ball towards the penalty spot, teams will adjust accordingly and score freely. All they have to do it take a shot and have one making that run as he will spill it to them.

He is a good goalkeeper no doubt but he still have a very long way to go. His errors could be fixed with experience but he is no where ready for the worldcup as #1. I will play Ajiboye or Ezenwa over this kid at the world cup.

Trent Alexander was raw this season and not even Liverpool 2nd choice right back. He has had his howlers e.g. against Man U). He persisted and is now headed to the World Cup and the Champions League final. Experience is not from training but, competitive matches.

There is a player in Brasil's final 23-man WC squad that has played ONLY 5 MINUTES for the national team.

I think you need to shut your mouth and your arse! Because Vince had or has those weaknesses and played well doesn't mean Uzoho's weaknesses should not be pointed out or that anyone is against Uzoho.

I bet the guy or the Liverpool is a backup. Unlike us going with 2 amateurs and injury-prone erratic Ezenwa. Anyway if we cld win Atlanta 96 ( without Dosu making a save), then anything is possible.

Trent wad Liverpool's 3rd choice RB at season start. Thibfs happened and he took his opportunity when presented and has locked down a starting shirt. Things happened to Nigeria's 1st choice coupled with inconsistencies from others and Uzoho has taken his chance. Let him have his opportunity and hopefully rise to the occasion.

Either way Super Eagles goalkeeping department will be better for it going forward.

A 7-game tournament is not place to try such. You can afford to lose 3-4 games in a league and still bounce back. You try that in a competition, man mi o d'owuro (it's goodnight).

And Uzoho has not taken anything oooo. I think he's sluggish going down. Maybe na my screen. I still rate Ezenwa higher based on his game against Cameroon. But to reduce his gbana a little bit.

Naija's three goalkeepers are better than 2014 and 2010. Inexperience or not. Additionally, they will get better. At least none of these will be overweight or tossing the ball into their own net. We'll take parrying.

Una funny for this forum nor be small. So you want to use the case of a Liverpool player playing at the EPL and CL to compare with that of .....aghh never mind. The quality and the level at which Trent is playing played a significant role in his selection. Let us just wish our boys well, they are all we have at the moment and one pray that their best will be good enough.
