Lille goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has quit international football after a meeting with top official of the Nigeria Football Federation in Belgium Thursday.
Enyeama’s decision did not come as a surprise after a major falling out with Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, on Tuesday night following the announcement of Ahmed Musa as new captain, africanFootball.com reports.
Earlier, on Thursday, the ex- Enyimba shot stopper, who has been Eagles’ skipper since Joseph Yobo quit international football last year, vowed “not to walk out on Nigeria.”
But he later said on Instagram: “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 service.
“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 our supporters worldwide. It has 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.”
