He landed awkwardly on his knee in the 61st minute, after making a superb save earlier.

The Eagles shot stopper was in pain despite receiving treatment, and was taken off on a stretcher.

The injury is a huge blow for Uzoho, who had lost his spot at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt toDaniel Akpeyi.

He had been making efforts to take back the position, though he kept in goal for Nigeria in the third place match against Tunisia at the tournament.

Uzoho had taken to his twitter handle to thank all his fans, promising to bounce back strong.
