Meltdown after site writes Nigerian goalie, 19, ‘celebrated son’s 17th birthday’

Photos of the goalkeeper did the rounds as social media users tried to figure if the Nigerian player really looks 19.

Twitter appears to be having a field day taking jabs at Nigerian star goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.

The Nigerian goalkeeper is trending after a satirical news site claimed he said happy birthday to his ’17-year-old’ son. The plot twist is that Uzoho is only 19, according to Google.

Social media has been having a field day at the news posted on satirical site News@7, which claims Uzoho wished his son a happy birthday on June 18.

The Facebook post of the birthday wishes, however, could not be found on Uzoho’s Facebook timeline.

According to the satirical site, the post read: “Wow my second son Michael is 17 today. I seek for God’s blessings for him. Daddy loves you, boy.”

It is unclear how social media concluded the news was true, but that did not stop them from wishing the footballer’s son many more years.
