Super Eagles first choice keeper and captain, Vincent Enyeama, who Thursday, October 8 announced his retirement from the team has agreed to stage a comeback.
Enyeama’s decision to return was taken yesterday in Belgium after a three- hour meeting with the president of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick.
According to Sunday Sunsports, Pinnick was said to revealed exclusively that after the meeting that the good news he has for Nigerians is that Enyeama has.......
assured him that he would rescind his retirement decision, even as he added that he succeeded in getting Enyeama and Oliseh to talk on phone. “I had a very fruitful meeting with Enyeama. Our meeting lasted for three hours and I must tell you that all is well now. Enyeama will return after the game against Cameroon tomorrow (today).
He spoke with Oliseh on phone after our meeting. He (Enyeama) is not in camp at the moment but he is likely going to watch the match against Cameroon from the stands,” Pinnick disclosed.
It would be noted that Enyeama decided to quit the Eagles over Oliseh’s decision to strip him of the skipper’s band. The new Eagles gaffer has since named Ahmed Musa new captain of the team with Ogenyi Onazi as vice captain.
Oliseh has come under fire from many soccer fans over the decision which they reason will polarize the Eagles as they chase Nations Cup and World Cup qualification tickets.
