Francis Odinaka Uzoho (born 28 October, 1998), known simply as Francis in Spain, is a Nigerian professional footballer, who plays for Spanish Club, Elche CF, on loan from Deportivo de La Coruña as a goalkeeper.
Uzoho represented Nigeria under-17s at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Aged only 14, he was an immediate backup to Dele Alampasu.
In October 2017, Uzoho received his first call-up to the Nigerian senior squad. He made his full international debut on 14 November, replacing Daniel Akpeyi in a 4–2 friendly win against Argentina.
He was named in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. By that time, he was considered Nigeria’s first-choice goalkeeper. He withdrew from the national squad in November 2018, due to injury.
