Enyeama Lands In Belgium, Oboabona Yet To Arrive

By Johnny Edward:

Lille goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has joined up with the Super Eagles ahead of the two international friendlies in Belgium against Congo and Cameroon, the official Twitter handle of the Nigerian Football Federation has reported.

The Eagles skipper who attended his mother's final burial in Akwa Ibom last Saturday, is set to take part in Tuesday'sfinal training session at the Battice FC training ground having missed the morning session.

If Enyeama gets the nod ahead of Carl Ikeme who has deputised for him it will be his first game for the Super Eagles under coach Sunday Oliseh.


 Enyeama has conceded one goal (against PSG in the season opener) in six Ligue 1 appearances for Lille,  who sit 10th on the log.

Still being expected is Rizespor defender Godfrey Oboabona who is yet to arrive in camp for the double header against the African opponents. 

The former Sunshine Stars defender is facing travel document issues.

As at the time of this report Completesportsnigeria.com checks revealed that the home-based players may not make the trip to Antwerp to due to visa hitches 

These players are goalkeepers Femi Thomas and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, defenders Chima Akas and Austin Oboroakpo, midfielder Paul Onobi and forward Prince Aggrey.

The Super Eagles take on the Leopards of Democratic Republic of Congo in Vise, Liege on Thursday before playing the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Dendermonde on Sunday.​

    This man called Oliseh will spoil and destroy Super eagles with his proudness and high temperament. If you fight with your players, I don’t know how you will succeed. Enyeama is still d best keeper we have. If you continue this way mr oliseh, I doubt if you will ever qualify Nigeria to Afcon 2017. Don’t you have feeling oliseh, somebody buried his mother and he still report to d camp ahead of some other players n you abuse him. If you don’t wan’t him, tell him to go. Bullshirt. U criticize stephen keshi I will see if you will achieve than him as eagles coach.
