I Am Tired Of Playing For Nigeria – Enyeama

A former Super Eagles goalkeeper Peterside Idah has alleged that former Eagles keeper, Vincent Enyeama has ruled himself out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as he was tired of playing for Nigeria.

Following Nigeria’s ‘easy’ qualification for the World Cup, there has been a clamour for a world-class goalkeeper to help cover the shaky Eagles’ post, with speculations linking Enyeama to a return from his unceremonial retirement from the national team.

Speaking on that possibility, Idah 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 that Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Francis Uzoho should be able to effectively man the post, however, 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 worldclass,” Idah said.

“Uzoho is better than him and I believe the training camp before the World Cup will determine who is really No 1.”
