TREND­ING Enyeama quits in­ter­na­tional football…>>

Daily Trust - - GLANZ -

Nige­rian Su­per Ea­gles’ first choice goeal­keeper, Vin­cent Enyeama said he has re­tired from in­ter­na­tional football. Enyeama whose bril­liant saves saw Nige­ria win­ning the AF­CON na­tions cup in 2013 made his de­ci­sion to re­tire known on his in­sta­gram page. His re­tire­ment is com­ing af­ter he was re­moved from the cap­tain­ship of the Su­per Ea­gles by the chief coach, Sun­day Oliseh re­cently. Oliseh re­moved him af­ter a row with the goal­keeper.

A daily, @van­guard­ngrnews tweeted a re­sponse from Oliseh on this Thurs­day. “I want a cap­tain who is dis­ci­plined. Who can mo­ti­vate other play­ers” -Oliseh to Enyeama

This dis­clo­sure got a lot of ne­ti­zens re­act­ing as to why he quit. While some have taken it in good faith, oth­ers ex­press shock; yet some have been in­dif­fer­ent to the hap­pen­ing.

Yak­zo­olo Ramadan posted a ques­tion: “Was he play­ing be­cause of the cap­tain­ship or out of pa­tri­o­tism?” The ne­ti­zen bade him farewell in his words: “We wish him all the best and pray for his bet­ter re­place­ment for Su­per Ea­gle.”

A ne­ti­zen, Jovial Abra­ham sim­ply posted: “Bye bye” on Face­book just another, Ja­cob An­thony said its an “Old story.”

In what seem not to clearly ex­press his thoughts, Muham­mad Shuaibu Al Kasim told Enyeama “Bet­ter for you.”

A cross sec­tion of Nige­ri­ans must have felt bad to hear this. A ne­ti­zen iden­ti­fied as Nezianya Fran­cis said, “This is a bad news.”

And on Twit­ter, JJ. Omo­juwa @Omo­juwa tweeted: “Vin­cent Enyeama will al­ways have my re­spect. I don’t know what went down in camp so can’t pass judg­ment but he’ll al­ways have my re­spect.”

Another football fan, Colin @ColinU­doh thanked Enyeama in a tweet: “I’m still on the phone with Enyeama. He’s on his way home to France. At this point, all I can say is #ThankYouEnyeama
