The Club confirmed the injury to two goalkeeper on omonoianews.com, and added that only the Club’s third choice goalkeeper Charalambos Kyriakides is fit ahead of this weekend’s Championship game against league leaders, Anorthosis at the Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium.

 

“The two goalkeepers of a team being injured in their national assignment, and even the same day, are something unprecedented.

 

“It is not only that Uzoho and Panayi were injured, but also that they suffered the worst damage they could possibly suffer, and logically we will not see them again in the season. The team is running to replace them ahead of Sunday’s game,” the website said.

 

The Club has been linked with 27-year-old Uruguayan, Salvador Ichazo and Brazilian Fabiano Ribeiro.

 

Salvador Ichazo who last play Club football for Torino , was member of the Uruguayan under-17 side at the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria.
