Former Super Eagles captain, Vincent Enyeama, is ready to return to the national team, Coach Gernot Rohr said on Wednesday.
Rohr stated this at a pre-match news conference ahead of Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.
The match will be played at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
Rohr said he had spoken with Enyeama and the goalkeeper was ready to come back to the Super Eagles.
“The past is the past but now he is injured. He has to win the fight against injury,” Rohr said.
Enyeama quit the national team in 2015 following a disagreement with the former national team coach, Sunday Oliseh.
Rohr said he has a good team to face the Cameroonians but his challenge was with the goalkeeper’s position.
The Franco-German coach said Ikechukwu Ezenwa would be in goal on Friday due to an injury sustained by two other goalkeepers in the team.
He added: “The list of players makes the difference, not so young, more of experienced players. We already have six points. All the players are in high spirit.
“We know that we have a good team, we are ready to make the difference. We have all the confidence to beat the Indomitable Lions here in Uyo.”
