Ex-Eagles Goalkeeper, Enyeama, Makes Africa’s Best Ever XI

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has been included in Africa’s best ever eleven.


The list was compiled by SunSport, following Samuel Eto’o’s retirement from professional football on Saturday.

Other players in the list include Eto’o, Mohamed Salah of Egypt, Sadio Mane of Senegal, Ivory Coast duo of Didier Drogba and Yaya Toure, and Ghana’s Michael Essien.

Also in the list are Lucas Radebe of South Africa, Ghana’s Samuel Kuffour, Rigobert Song of Cameroon and 1995 FIFA World Best Player and current Liberia president, George Weah.

Commenting on Enyeama’s inclusion, SunSport wrote:”Arguably the best African goalkeeper of the past decade, Enyeama is Nigeria’s joint-highest appearance maker with 101 caps to his name.

“He acted as the Super Eagles’ vice captain for their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations triumph and featured in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups – notably putting in a sensational performance against Argentina and Lionel Messi in the former tournament.”

Enyeama, 37, made his debut for the Eagles in 2002, before retiring in 2015.
