The Nigerian keeper made an outstanding 12 saves for his Omonia Nicosia side but was unlucky to concede a late goal in the 93rd minute in their 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.
Speaking in his post-match conference, the 23-year-old Nigeria international and Manchester United fan said was delighted with the opportunity to play at Old Trafford.
“It’s a dream come true for me, I have dreamed to play at Old Trafford for a long time so when I saw the draw and I figured that I would be playing at Old Trafford, I prayed to God to get an opportunity to play, so I got it and am happy I played here,” Uzoho told BT Sport.
Uzoho had only played 134 minutes so far this season but produced a string of stunning saves for his Omonia Nicosia on the night.
” I am not disappointed with the result because we had a great game, I would have preferred for us to get at least a point. But I am happy, it’s not an easy stadium to play with these big players.”
Speaking further if that was the best performance of his career, Uzoho responded:
“Arguably, yes I think so. I am proud of my teammates because it was not a one-man job. We gave everything out there in the field, so like I said earlier I am happy with my performance.”
Omonia manager Neil Francis Lennon also praised the Nigerian for his brilliant performance.
“Very proud of Uzoho, he was just world-class today.”
