Former Nigeria U17 international goalkeeper Francis Uzoho made his Deportivo La Coruna debut on Sunday, starting in the goalless draw away to Eibar.
The Nigerian signed a one-year deal with Pepe Mel’s side in August, but had to wait till Sunday for his first appearance.
Standing at 1.96m, the 18-year-old originally aimed to be a striker before taking up goalkeeping duties.
He did not disappoint Pepe Mel, who gambled by starting the youngster ahead of the experienced Romanian international Pantilimon, as he kept a clean sheet.
After the game, Uzoho excitedly tweeted: “A day that will never disappear from my memory#my debut#thanks all for the support#Forza Depor IN CHRIST ALONE.”
