Real reason Uzoho started for Omonia against Man Utd
Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, started for Omonia Nicosia against Manchester United in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The visitors are without goalkeeper Fabiano tonight due to a shoulder injury.
Fabinao was impressive last week in Cyprus, making several saves including a strong one to deny Antony from long range.
United had 28 shots in total last week – though only eight on target – and controlled 73% of the possession.
Erik ten Hag men’s 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad was disappointing, but wins over the bottom two – Sheriff Tiraspol and Omonia Nicosia – means they are just three points behind the group leaders.
United and Real Sociedad face each other on 3 November which is likely to be a crucial game. Until then, United need to keep winning.
