This Is Just Sad! Enyeama Announces Retirement From Super Eagles

Nigerian football legend and former skipper of the team, Vincent Enyeama has announced his retirement from international football.

This is as a result of the rift he had with coach Sunday Oliseh. Enyeama who was stripped of his captaincy role by Oliseh also had a face-off with the manager that led to the security agents being involved.
Despite the Nigerian Football Federation's intervention, Enyeama has decided to take a bow. He made the announcement via Instagram. Here's what he wrote:

"I have fought a good fight for more than 13years.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 13years of national services.God bless NIGERIA.from 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 supporter world wide.its been the most trying period of my life but I know that Nigerian are there for me and God is with me.😭😭😭😭😭😭.God bless NIGERIA"

Indeed, this is the end of an era. I honestly feel this is not the best way to treat a legend. 101 caps, 13 years of active service, recently lost his mum and now this?

I consider this a sad day for Nigerian football based on the circumstances surrounding his retirement. I wish he retired under better circumstances and not with animosity

Wish you all the best Vinny!!!
