Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has equalled the record of the youngest goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in World Cup history following Eagles 2-0 wins against Iceland in Volgograd on Friday.

The first young goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in the World Cup was a North Korean goalkeeper, Li Chan-Myong who was 19 years and 198 days old when he famously shut out the Italians from scoring in 1966.

Uzoho who is making his first appearance in the World Cup conceded two goals in the opening game against Croatia but was at his best on Friday as he put up a fantastic performance to deny Iceland from scoring.

Nigeria will play Argentina in their last group game June 26 at Saint Petersburg.
