Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho had an over-the-moon feeling as he made his debut for new club Elche.
The 19-year-old shots stopper, who represented Nigeria at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup, joined Elche from Deportivo La Coruna – both Spanish clubs.
On his debut in a Copa del Rey encounter against Granada on Thursday, Uzoho manned the post and conceded once in the 2-1 victory.
Jonathan Niguez and Pablo Vazquez had scored for Elche before Uzoho conceded in the 81st minute of the encounter.
“Great night, great debut, on to the next round #CopaDelRey,” Uzoho wrote beneath a picture he posted on Instagram on Friday.
He will be looking forward to making his Segunda debut on Sunday when Elche host RCD Mallorca.
