Enyeama Gives Super Eagles ‘Standing Ovation’ After Victory Over Argentina

Enyeama Gives Super Eagles ‘Standing Ovation’ After Victory Over Argentina

Retired Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has expressed his pride in the team’s performance in 2017, which was rounded off with a stunning 4-2 victory over Argentina in a friendly in Krasnodar, Russia on Tuesday.

The Super Eagles came from 2-0 down to outclass the South American giants 4-2 on the back of a brilliant Alex Iwobi brace and further strikes from Kelechi Iheanacho and debuting left-back Bryan Idowu.


Enyeama quit the team in 2015 after falling out with then head coach Sunday Oliseh but there have been loud calls for him to return for next year’s World Cup.

However, Enyeama, who is on the road to recovery after a long injury-enforced lay-off, is happy with the present team’s performances.

“What a way to end 2017. Proud of @NGSuperEagles as a proud naija soccer supporter. Standing ovation, hat off and bravoooo 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏,” Enyeama tweeted moment after Tuesday’s friendly win.

The Super Eagles have indeed had a brilliant 2017, overruning their African qualifying Group B opponents on the way to claiming the group’s sole Russia 2018 World Cup ticket before Tuesday night’s superb victory.

  • We don’t need Eyeama anymore

  • Thank to vincent enyeama for his support, but stay your lane ooo, no come worry the team again ooo

  • We need Vincent Enyeama now much than never before.

    • Bros wettin we need am for. let’s assume say e b keep today match shay e for catch d two goals abi they no for fit score us at all. it’s time for us to move forward without eyeama and believe on this present crop of players we have. na one day eyeama b start b4 e reach d stage wen e dey so. so abeg mk we leave dis boys alone. dey may eventually better pass eyeama in d future who knows .

      • How can a goalkeeper carry ball oustide his area when he wasnt under any pressure, and you needed to hear what the comentators said about how he dealt with the resulting free kick, if Enyeama gets back to full fitness, we will need him i beg. dont be suprise Zlatan will come out of retirement to play his first ever world cup for Sweeden next year.

    • To come and win world cup for us abi?

    • we will repeat France 98 experience when we bring Peter Rufai & Denmark give us 4:0.

  • Enyeama tnx 4 d stand innovation but don’t bring confusion again

  • Pls we need Vincent now, world cup is for experienced players.

  • Get fit and be back.

  • Nigerians are just too funny, shouldn’t we allow people who laboured for this qualification enjoy it and now we all are clamouring for someone who intentionally left the team to come back, guess he’s a saviour and he’s not even the first choice at his club anymore. Lets always appreciate people who are willing to sacrifice for this country. No one is saying Enyeama is not good but these crop of players need to prove theirselves too.

    • no need of using abusive language for people on this plaform because they share their thought about Eyeama which you believe is opposite to yours, my believe is that whoever is in support or against the recall of eyeama are doing so because of betterment of our national team, as a human being we use to view things from different perspective, some people think his present in team may cause distraction while some persons may be thinking about our shortage of capable goalkeeper, i understand everyone stand, my prayer is that may God do us the best so that we can have a better outing comes Russia 2018 World cup.

  • zakariyah 4 years ago

    • Have you ever wondered why Buffon mounted the post for more Dan a decade? That’s because nobody could fit into his shoes. The same goes for enyeama.
