I’m Still Open To Playing For Nigeria – Enyeama

Vincent Enyeama, Nigeria’s most capped player has been in the news lately following an altercation with new Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.

A clash at their Belgium camp led to the former Eagles captain living camp and announcing his retirement from the National team.

In what is a shocking u-turn , Vincent Enyeama has admitted that he is still open to the possibility of playing for Nigeria.

In an interview with Galaxy television, Enyeama city his mother’s burial as his reason for arriving in camp late.

He concluded the interview by admitting that there’s still a possibility that he might return to the National team.

Here’s an excerpt of the interview,

“So, for me to lose my mother, be invited to the camp, only to be stripped of captainship. Then out of argument, to be threatened to have the cops or security called for me, to me, I think it is the height of it.
I have heard all sorts of things that Neymar this and that. They never treated Thiago Silva that way. They never treated Mascherano that way. Some Nigerians can say whatever they want to say, but for me, I feel that’s not the right way to be treated.
I am still open for playing for Nigeria till the day I die. Till the day I can stop playing”
