Vincent Enyeama of Nigeria saves against Lionel Messi of Argentina at the 2010 World Cup

Recent social media postings by Vincent Enyeama have suggested the record-capped goalkeeper may have finally given in to pressures and will return to the Super Eagles in time for next year’s World Cup in Russia.

Enyeama, 35, quit international football in October 2015 after a major falling out with then Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.

However, from his first day in charge of the Eagles Rohr has maintained he wants Enyeama back in the national team as he considers him the country’s best goalkeeper.

But he has also made it clear that he is only ready to have the Lille shot stopper back if he is back playing club football regularly after a major knee injury and that he does not put forward any conditions for his comeback.

In one of his recent social media postings, Enyeama simply wrote: “Countdown on. This is massive. Never wanted to do this, but I don’t have a choice. Wish me luck.”

Should he return, Russia 2018 would be his fourth World Cup after he featured at the 2002, 2010 and 2014 tournaments.


  1. Coach Rohr, now that the draw is over, when will Vincent Enyeama join Super Eagles in preparation for Russia 2018?

    Remember, we must defeat Argentina, we must get to the final God willing, we must celebrate the Cup in Nigeria.

    History will never forget that you took the lead. Sentiment aside, now is that time for real business focus – Russia 2018.
