Nwankwo Kanu, a former captain of the Super Eagles, has said that Vincent Enyeama should be included in coach Gernot Rohr’s team. The former Arsenal forward told KweseESPN that the country needed Enyeama to man the goal in the rest of the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His request comes after reliable hands, Carl Ikeme was diagnosed of acute leukemia.
“As it is now we need Vincent badly. In my opinion, Enyeama should come back immediately,” the two-time African Player of the Year told KweséESPN.
“Enyeama is very very good. He is one of the best players in Africa, and one of the best in the world. Let the federation look into it and do everything they can to bring him back.
“If Enyeama says he doesn’t want to come, people like us can talk to him, the federation too can talk to him. If a lot of people talk to him, I’m sure that definitely he will change his mind.
“And not just Enyeama, let us look at some of the other active goalkeepers too. If we have like four goalkeepers there training, there will be competition and the coach can have more options to make his decision.”
