Former Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has made his much-anticipated return from injury after he featured for Lille’s U18s on Saturday.
Enyeama, 35, returned to action following a seven-month injury layoff to help his club’s U18s beat Croix 3-1 in the fourth tier of French football.
He sustained a serious knee injury in April and has done well to work his way back to full fitness after surgery.
On his injury comeback, a delighted Enyeama expressed his gratitude via his Twitter handle.

He tweeted: “God has been so faithful. 7 months and some weeks,God has taken me up. I had my 1st game.I want to thank everyone that worked for this day to happen.God bless you all.”
Some fans have called for Enyeama’s return to the Super Eagles setup with the current crop of goalkeepers largely unconvincing.
