Nigeria top shot stopper, Vincent Enyeama, has quit international duty following a clash with newly appointed Eagles boss, Sunday Oliseh on Tuesday.
Vincent who started his international career in 2002, and was part of the squad who represented Nigeria in the World cup that took place in Korea/Japan, made the announcement today, 8th of October 2015.
“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 world wide.
“Its been the most trying period of my life but I know that Nigerian are there for me and God is with me..God bless NIGERIA,” Enyeama said.
Earlier, on Thursday the 33-year-old Lille goalkeeper, who has been Nigeria skipper since Joseph Yobo quit international football last year, vowed “not to walk out on Nigeria”. However after a meeting with top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in Belgium, the Lille goalie called it quit.
With two international friendlies in line for the Super Eagles, Oliseh will now have to depend fully on new debutant Carl Ikeme, and Nigeria based Femi Thomas to fill his position.
