Vincent Enyeama, Super Eagles goalkeeper, has retired from the national team, a day after he was stripped of the captain’s armband.
Enyeama, who recently had an altercation with the coach of the Nigerian team, Sunday Oliseh, said on his Instagram page he is no longer available for national team duties and would henceforth face his club career.
“I have fought a good fight for more than 13 years. I have finished my course; I have kept the faith and sang the anthem with passion. Henceforth, there is laid for me a crown which only God can reward me for my 13 years of national services. God bless Nigeria.
“Henceforth, I am no more the captain of the Nigerian senior football team; I am no more the goalie of the team. I am out of the team. I am no more available for international duties.
“I want to say thank you to every Nigerian fan and supporter worldwide. It’s been the most trying period of my life but I know that Nigerians are there for me and God is with me. God bless Nigeria.”
Enyeama, who represented Nigeria at three World Cup finals, is the most capped Super Eagles player, with 101 caps to his name.
