Coach Gernot Rohr has expressed his desire to have Vincent Enyeama back in the Nigeria senior national team. Enyeama quit the Super Eagles following a fractured relationship with former coach, Sunday Oliseh on October 8, 2015, a feud which led to him been stripped of the captaincy. The 34-year-old has been in terrific form for OSC Lille and as a result, the tactician wants to bolster his goalkeeping department by recalling the 34-year-old.
“I asked about Enyeama when I signed because I know his qualities,” Rohr told media ahead of Tanzania’s game. “I also spoke with the goalkeepers’ coach Alloy Agu and he spoke highly of him. I’ve called and spoken with Enyeama since my resumption but nothing is settled yet. “I will see him after the Tanzania game because I saw him play in France and he’s the kind of player we need to help us move forward.”
