The guy just have big body and looks older.

Nigerians like accusing people of been older than their age simply because they are losers. They like to console themselves for failing in life.

When mikel who's mom sold akara at busa buji featured at u17 many years ago, people said he was over 30.its almost 15 years now, mikel whom they said is Older than their fathers is still young and playing.

TheSuperNerd:
Ever heard of Acromegaly? This could be down to the lad being somewhat Acromegalic also because right from his early teens, he has been a big kid. His Growth hormone and other growth factors must have worked in some form of overdrive.

We have kids looking like this and yet are so young. Even some are at tall as 6ft 5inches before they are 18.

Look at this kid below from Brazil who recently joined what I assume to be your team (judging by your moniker), Real madrid. His name is Vinicius Jr and he is just 17. Would be 18 next month.


Renato Sanches and Donnaruma comes to mind

Oga, u must have been very old when u were in secondary skl o. My nephew is 14 yrs old and in SS2 already. Try to ask the kids in your neighborhood abt their ages nd classes, U will discover how disconnected u are from the reality of ur environment. Leave Uzoho alone nd face ur life.

Poverty is a bastard. Dude might probably spend his earlier years in farm, under the scorching sun, feeding on some unbalance diet. I thank my God. It's not by my power.

All I can say is if you didn't know him growing up or you are not his immediate family member, then you can't say with certainty how old he is.
Fortune chukwudi was our u-17 captain in the World Cup in 2009 where we finished as runners up and was also a registered player for Sharks united in the year 2002 as an 18yrs old according to the then chairman of Sharks United , Adokiye, who provided pictorial proof of Fortune as their player then.
In essence, MRI isn't fool proof. Uzoho may be 19 or not but you can't say because he passed his MRI test, he is 19 as Fortune passed his MRI also and was at least 25 then.
My two cents anyway.

Fortune Chukwudi did not pass MRI.. In 2009, MRI tests were not mandatory. There were random tests by FIFA. It only became mandatory in 2011.

It was easier for older players to slip through the cracks in 2009. Not so, now.

Numero uno, It's Hawkings with an S, and not hawking, you make it sound like selling moi-moi at onitsha main market.

Secondly, can you confidently account for the fact that a man who claims to be 19, supposedly celebrated his 17yo son's birthday, its either that we are serving a God of incomprehensible phenomena or we are seeing a white lie.

Umu-chineke, open your eyes. And BTW, I'm not concluding anything here ohh. Read my earlier comment.
When did he celebrate his son's birthday? You saw something online and you didn't care to verify its veracity and you are using it as fact already. Why will you people keep on attacking someone for something you can't oppose with facts?
I can't deal.

Nigerians will never believe you are young and successful.
They've done it with obviously young faced people like Wizkid and Kiss Daniel, so the goalkeeper shouldn't be surprised.

Once Nigerians start to debate your age, and refute it's validity with such vigor, just be happy that you're doing something very right with your life. wink


Lol, I swear. Exactly on my mind too.

Oga you know nothing. I was 4 years ahead of Francis back then in Owerri, I am not even up to 30.

My younger brother was in the same class with Francis. We attended the same school. Now my brother is not even up to 24.

So what exactly are you saying? Please leave the young man alone to enjoy his meteoric rise.

I have learnt to never judge people's ages through their faces. I have a cousin who looks 40 but is only 19. The sister looks like a woman who has had at least 3 children (especially when she makes up) and she is only 16.

I think sport also contributes to making people look older than their age. Look at Anythony Joshua. He is only 28 or so but does he look 28? Joseph Parker is 26 but does he look 26? Look at footballers like Iniesta who is only 33 but looks like a grandfather. Look at Mo Salah who is only 26 years old.

Oh FFS, There's no way in hell that guy is 19 and one of the pictures you posted to prove your point actually helps in disproving it. The picture of Uzoho in 2014 shows him in the drivers seat of a car. The legal driving age in Nigeria is 18. In 2014, he was in Aspire Academy in Qatar but the legal driving age in Qatar is 18. Can you explain how someone who's supposed to be 15 in 2014 is allowed to drive?

How do you know if that picture was in Qatar or Nigeria? If the official driving age in Qatar is 18 and he was in Qatar in the picture. He is obviously not the driver

I was driving in Nigeria by 16/17. That could also be in the driver's or passenger side. It is difficult to tell. I have taken picture in the passenger side that look that way.

In 2014, Uzoho was 16 which is a good age to start driving.

If he is not 19, he is not far from it. He is a young guy. He is 21/22 max.
1) First of all, he was supposed to be in Qatar that year, so it's a logical conclusion for me to assume that it was where the picture was taken. Qatar is not Nigeria so I doubt they'd be so lax with their laws especially when it comes to foreigners
2) A picture taken on the passenger's side can never be at that angle and I know this because I've taken hundreds from that particular vantage point. It wouldn't even take that angle if you try to rotate the picture using an editing app
