Former Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has confessed that he wished the 2017 Nations Cup qualifier against Chad in Kaduna had never happened.
Enyeama who was critical of the choice of the venue prior to the game which the Eagles eventually won 2-0 posted a picture of the national team’s line-up on his Instagram wall with a note that reads: “Wish that this match never happened.”
His comments prior to that match led to friction between Enyeama and the Nigeria Football Federation and began an unfortunate chain of events.
Enyeama was issued with a query for breaking the team’s code of conduct and there was serious friction between him and the governing body.
Not long after, Enyeama fell out with Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh, which resulted in an ugly clash that eventually led to the Lille goalkeeper’s premature retirement from the Super Eagles.
Incidentally, Kaduna has been chosen to host the AFCON qualifier against Egypt in March.
