Nigerian legend urges Rohr to recall Enyeama

Vincent Enyeama of Nigeria during the 2013 Orange African Cup of Nations match between Zambia and Nigeria on the 25,January 2013 at Mbombela Stadium.

Former Nigeria international goalkeeper Andrew Aikhuomogbe reckons there is a need for the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr to recall Vincent Enyeama.

Aikhuomogobe has called for Enyeama’s return into the team as replacement for Carl Ikeme ahead of Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in September.

Ikeme, who has been Super Eagles number one goalkeeper since taking over from Enyeama has been diagnosed with leukemia last month by Wolves club doctor and remains a doubt for the team.

However, the former goalkeeper of the senior national team said Enyeama remains the only capable net minder to replace Ikeme.

“As for me, I don’t think we have any better goalkeeper that can replace Carl Ikeme than Vincent Enyeama in the Super Eagles,” Aikhuomogbe said.
