FIFA HONOURS ENYEAMA

Enyeama (2)
Former Super Eagles Captain and Lille Metropole of France’s goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, is in celebration having received an award from world governing body FIFA on Tuesday for his exploits in French Ligue 1.
The 33-year-old shot-stopper, who only recently passed the 100th Ligue 1 appearance for Lille, took to Instagram to share the news to his fans.
“This is how goodness and mercy will follow you all this month of March. First day of the month, FIFA got me a trophy for hardwork, dedication, success,” he wrote under a photograph of himself with a plaque.
“Thank you @FIFA. I want to wish everyone reading this message a wonderful month of March. God did it for me. God will do it for us.”
Just like he has already achieved for his French Club, Enyeama is one of the very few Nigerian players with over 100 caps.
Enyeama abruptly retired from international football last year after falling out with Sunday Oliseh, who was then the Super Eagles head coach.
The goalkeeper, who has made 49 saves in 25 games for Lille this season, has ruled out coming back to the Nigerian national team even with the recent exit.
