Uzoho: Messi Made My Best Day In Football

first_img Uzoho’s inclusion in Nigeria’s squad to the football fiesta was a massive surprise to many. The young shot-stopper was part of the victorious Nigeria squad at the 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, albeit without playing a single minute at the tournament. But Uzoho moved to Deportivo La Coruna from Qatar’s Aspire Academy in January 2017 and, later that year, became the youngest foreign goalkeeper to ever play in La Liga, marking his memorable Deportivo debut with a clean sheet. His form in Spain caught the attention of Gernot Rohr, who had been looking for solutions to the Super Eagles’ goalkeeping problems caused by the premature retirement of Carl Ikeme. Then only 19, Uzoho made his Super Eagles debut against Argentina in a November 2017 friendly, a game Messi missed, and Nigerian won by a 4-2 scoreline. Despite his relative inexperience, Uzoho was elevated as the first-choice keeper ahead of the experienced duo of Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, heading to the World Cup.Advertisement Loading… He was in goal when Rohr’s men lost to Croatia, defeated Iceland, and succumbed to a late 2-1 loss to Argentina, with Messi netting a fine opener. Despite the Super Eagles losing that encounter, Uzoho feels privileged sharing the same pitch with the six-time Ballon d’Or winner. “Playing at the World Cup for the first time as a first choice goalkeeper came as a grace to me,” the Omonia Nicosia keeper said, as quoted by the media. read also:Uzoho: Why I married at 20 “In fact, the day Nigeria played against Argentina was my best day in the game because I stood on the same field with Messi and Higuain, players I respect a lot. “I had to control my excitement as a professional keeper to give my best in the game.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Francis Uzoho has picked the Super Eagles last group match against Messi’s Argentina at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as the best day of his football career.

APC approves rezoning on property with future landfill potential

first_imgGreensburg, IN —The Decatur County Area Plan Commission voted 7-1 in favor of re-zoning close to 94 acres from A-1 zoning to an I-2 zoning for Property owned by BEX Farms, a subsidiary of Best Way Disposal. Paul Stone, President of the Area Plan Commission, made it clear to the audience the petition on which the Commission was to vote, was to be on the rezoning of property and not on a landfill.  Stone stated that if it should pass, the discussion on a landfill would be at the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting. During the last meeting in March petitioners were asked three questions to bring back to the Commission: what is the smallest amount of land that is necessary for rezoning, what is the life expectancy of the landfill currently and if additional space is approved, and can something be done to help with the odor issues.  Kurt Pueblo, speaking on behalf of BEX Farms stated that they were reducing their petition from 150 acres to 93.98 acres to be rezoned and that approximately 48 of those acres would be used for a future landfill.  Pueblo stated that the current life expectancy of the landfill is between 10-12 years and adding the additional land would increase this by 20-30 additional years.  As both audience members and AP Commissioner Sheila Kirchhoff addressed continuing odor issues, Pueblo stated that work has been done to contain the smell including increasing soil cover and maintenance to newly installed gas pipes.  After hearing from several members of the community that were all opposed to the potential landfill, the commission voted in favor. The vote now moves to the County Board of Zoning Appeals for a vote on the petition for a conditional use as a landfill.last_img read more
