Posted on: February 29, 2016, 09:33:41 PM
Vincent Enyeama has ruled out a return to the Nigeria senior national team, claiming he does not want to talk about the issue again.

Enyeama, pulled the curtain on his international career, 13 years after making his debut for the Super Eagles on October 8, 2015 after a fractured relationship by coach Sunday Oliseh.

The 33-year-old Lille goalkeeper had arrived at the Eagles' training camp in Belgium late having had extra time off agreed following the death of his mother. However, he arrived to find he had been stripped of the captaincy, which had instead been handed to Ahmed Musa.

With reports in the media tipping interim national team handler Samson Siasia to recall the veteran back to the team following the resignation of Oliseh, but Enyeama says he has made up mind and will not quash his decision.

“I don’t want to talk about this issue again. I think my earlier decision stands,” Enyeama told BrilaFm.

Meanwhile, chairman of technical and development committee of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Chris Green revealed that the Eagles’ handler have been directed to submit their programme for the qualifiers against Egypt.

According to Green, the NFF is expecting the programme latest by Thursday this week. The programme will contain the team list and other things the coaches believe will give them success against Hector Cuper’s men.

Nigeria are second in Group G with two points behind the seven-time African champions.
