Enyimba goalkeeper John Noble has been announced as Francis Uzoho’s replacement in Super Eagles’ squad for this month’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde.

The Nigeria Football Federation made the announcement on Sunday night.

Uzoho featured in his Cypriot club Omonia Nicosia’s UEFA Conference League encounter against Swiss club Basel on Thursday night but missed Sunday’s league clash against Ethnikos Achnas due to illness.

”Enyimba goalkeeper John Noble has been called up to replace Francis Uzoho who has been reported sick. Get well Frank,” reads a statement on the Super Eagles Facebook page.
