Former Super Eagle Goalkeeper and captain, Vincent Enyeama has ruled himself out of participation for Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup holding in Russia.

This was revealed another Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Peterside Idah who clained that the Lille number one told him in a conversation.

He said “I was one of those who spoke to Enyeama when there was an attempt to get him back to the national team and he told me he’s tired of playing for Nigeria. “So, there should be no Enyeama (going to the World Cup). The players should have the love to play for Nigeria and not the love to play at the World Cup and make history.” He added
Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Francis Uzoho should be able to stand, but the choice was up to the coaches. “Ezenwa appears to be the No 1 now after what he did in the qualifiers, but he is not world-class,” Idah said. “Uzoho is better than him and I believe the training camp before the World Cup will determine who is really No 1.”
There has been clamour for the return of Enyeama in the team he left acrimoniously during the reign of Sunday Oliseh as the team’s coach.
