Former Super Eagles media officer, Colin Udoh, has weighed in on the debate surrounding the real age of Nigerian national football team goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho who is 19.
The real age of Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho who is said to be 19-years-old has been trailed with mixed reactions and criticisms in recent times by social media users.
Uzoho who plays for Spanish club, Deportivo de La Coruña as a goalkeeper, became a big joke online with many accusing him of not declaring his real age as they feel he's way older than 19.
Over the weekend, a post surfaced online claiming the 19-year-old goalkeeper celebrated his second son’s 17th birthday on Facebook.
Former Super Eagles media officer, Colin Udoh, has now taken to his Instagram to slam those questioning Uzoho's age as he addresses the controversy surrounding the age of the goalkeeper, who is the youngest player at the ongoing 2018 World Cup
He shared a picture of Uzoho when he represented Nigeria at under-17 level at the age of 14 and wrote:
"To all you muppets going on about Francis Uzoho’s age, this is what he looked like in 2013 when he was a 14-year-old in the under 17 camp. Feel free to slap some sense into your own heads since looks is now a determinant for age."
