The Super Eagles goalkeeper was humiliated in goal after conceding five goals within 25 minutes in the second half of his team’s league defeat

Francis Uzoho has slammed a journalist who mocked him after conceding five goals in Elche’s 5-1 loss Cadiz on Sunday.

Rober Correa started the comeback for Cadiz in the 50th minute by canceling out Sory Kaba's opener for Elche at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza.

Goals from Dejan Lekic, Jose Mari, Salvi, Manu Vallejo within 25 minutes wrecked Pacheta's men and left them in the 14th spot in the Segunda Division table.

Prior to the game, Uzoho has kept two successive clean sheets [vs. Malaga and Real Zaragoza] but the journalist took to Twitter to question his abilities describing the goalkeeper’s showing as a concern for the Super Eagles.

In his reaction, the 19-year-old shot-stopper expressed displeasure with the comment and queried his knowledge about football.

After the game, Elche disclosed that Uzoho who has been invited for Nigeria's international assignment this month  suffered a concussion.

The update comes as a concern for Gernot Rohr ahead of Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa on November 17.
