Uzoho has been a predictable figure for the Super Eagles since he made his intro in 2017 and he is intending to copy his legend.
“It’s been like a dream and sometimes I just continue to thank God for everything and the coaches for the opportunity,” Uzoho told BBC Sport.
“My biggest hero for Nigeria remains Vincent and I always admire him.
“To think I was watching him at the last World Cup in Brazil, making that incredible save against Bosnia, to now getting a chance to follow in his footsteps is unbelievable.
“I have faced some tough players in La Liga and some friendly games, I believe I still have a lot to do in my career.
“We have a good squad and I am mentally prepared and ready.”
Francis Uzoho is energized with the opportunity to advance into the shoes of previous Nigeria beat goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.
The 19-year-old has been a predictable figure for Gernot Rohr’s side since he made his intro against Argentina in November 2017. Furthermore, he is in line to proceed in objective when the West Africans open their World Cup battle with Croatia on Saturday.
