Enyeama Confronts PSG In Season Opener

By Adeboye Amosu:

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama is expected to be in goal tonight when his club Lille Metropole host Champions Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade Pierre Mauroy, in their opening game of the 2015/2016 French Ligue 1 season, Completesportnigeria.com reports.

Lille who finished in disappointing eight position last term will be out to start their campaign on a positive note especially as PSG will be without their talismanic forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is sidelined after hurting his right knee in the Super Cup win against Lyon last weekend.

On a personal level, Enyeama will be keen to improve on his showing for the modest French side this season following a not too impressive performance last term.

The erstwhile Enyimba goalie conceded 42 goals last season, 16 more than he conceded the previous season when he won the Marc Vivien Award for the best African Player in the French Ligue 1.

The encounter will be the first competitive match for Lille under new coach Herve Renard who succeeded Rene Girard.
