Legendary Nigerian Goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama Quits International Football



Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has quit international football after a meeting with top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in Belgium.

Enyeama’s decision came after a falling-out with Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh on Tuesday night following the announcement of CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa as the country’s new captain.

Announcing his retirement via Instagram, Enyeama wrote, “I have fought a good fight for more than 13 years. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and sang the anthem with passion. Henceforth, there is laid for me a crown which only God can reward me for my 13 years of national service. God bless Nigeria. From henceforth, I am no more the captain of the Nigerian senior football team, I am no more the goalie of the team, I am out of the team. I am no more available for international duties. I want to say thank you to every Nigerian fan and supporter worldwide. It’s being the most trying period of my life but I know that Nigerians are there for me and God is with me. God bless Nigeria.”
