The mother of Nigeria’s goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho, has revealed his real age to the media.

The mother, who gave her name as Auntie Mercy said she does not recall the exact date she gave birth to Francis but do recall world events that took place.

According to Auntie Mercy, she took Francis to Ghana two years after delivering him to visit other relatives who were resident in Ghana. After spending 3 months in Ghana, they had to return due to a famine that hit the country at that time.

The only known famine that hit Ghana in history was in 1983. So mathematically if they visited Ghana two years before the famine, it means Francis was born in 1981.

Francis is 37 years, per world event narrated by his mother Auntie Mercy.
