According to KickOff, the 26-year-old reckons that The Eagles are coming to beat South Africa in their own back yard.

“We are the best and you can’t take that away from us, we are the best in Africa. We have unbelievable players who can do crazy things with the ball,” said the Nigerian international.

“As a Nigerian I wish my country to win, but I also wish South Africa all the best.”

Uzoenyi was part of Nigeria’s World Cup squad but failed to make the cut for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers.
