Uzoho not at fault for first goal against Ukraine — Rufai

Omonia of Cyprus star, Francis Uzoho was not at fault for the first goal Nigeria conceded against Ukraine during an international friendly on Tuesday, according to former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Peter Rufai.

The game which ended 2-2 saw the three-time African champions take a 2-0 lead in the first half but a strong second half fight back saw Manchester City wing-back Oleksandr Zinchenko beat Uzoho at his near post before Roman Yaremchuk levelled scores inside a minute.

Speaking with SportingLife, Rufai said: ”Nigeria won bronze at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations while Ukraine are currently top of Group B in the Euro 2020 qualifier ahead of Christian Ronaldo’s Portugal.
