Super Eagles Coach Confirms Goalkeeper Vincent Enyiama’s Return

Good News.. Goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is expected to come out of retirement and return to the national when he fully recovers from knee surgery, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has revealed.

This declaration comes on the back of a clamour for the return of the Lille shot stopper after he quit international football in October 2015 under a huge cloud.

“Enyeama has had a knee meniscus surgery and he is not for (the matches against) Cameroon, that is too early for him, but he will come later,” declared Rohr.

Enyeama, 34, is Nigeria’s most capped international with 101 appearances for the country.

England-based Carl Ikeme replaced Enyeama as the country’s No 1, but he has now been sidelined after he was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Daniel Akpeyi, Dele

Alampasu and Ikechukwu Ezenwa will jostle for the Eagles No. 1 shirt for the World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon next month.
