Former Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, is back in training after a long injury layoff.
The former Enyimba of Aba goalie confirmed this via his Twitter handle. He tweeted that:
“And after 6 months. 1st group training. thank be to God. and everyone who worked tirelessly for me to get here.”
The Lille FC of France star sustained a season-ending knee injury earlier in April spring his club’s 2-0 defeat to Stade Rennes. He was replaced in the 65th minute of that game by Mike Maigan and has yet to feature at all since the start of the new season.
The news of his return to training would be a big boost to Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr as he prepares his charges for next year’s World Cup in Russia. His goalkeeping options recently diminished after Wolves stopper Carl Ikeme had to undergo cancer treatment.
Vincent Enyeama was Super Eagles no.1 in the goalkeeping department before he fell out with former coach Sunday Oliseh and has not featured for the team ever since though that could all change under the regime of Gernot Rohr, who is said to be keen to get Enyeama involved in the setup.
