Enyimba’s Theophilus Afelokhai has been handed his maiden Nigeria call-up after first-choice goalkeeper Francis Uzoho was ruled out for upcoming games against South Africa and Uganda.

On Monday, Spanish outfit Elche confirmed Uzoho will be sidelined for four weeks after suffering a fracture to the rib on the back of their heavy 5-1 defeat to Cadiz in Sunday’s Segunda encounter.

And coach Gernot Rohr has extended a call-up to Afelokhai who was a bright spark in the People’s Elephants’ Caf Confederation Cup campaign. The former Kano Pillars safe hands will battle for the no. 1 spot with club teammate, Ikechuwku Ezenwa – whom interestingly is behind the 30-year-old in the club’s pecking order – and Chippa United’s Daniel Akpeyi.

On November 17, the Super Eagles play their crucial African Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa away at the FNB Stadium before hosting Uganda in a friendly billed for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, three days later. (Goal)
