Vincent Enyeama, one of the best African goalkeepers of all time, officially retired from international football. This follows Enyeama’s wrangle with manager and former Eagles midfielder Sunday Oliseh, whereby the manager stripped Enyeama of the captaincy and handed it to Ahmed Musa.

Enyeama arrived at Nigeria’s Belgium camp this week a day after his mother’s burial, and left the camp earlier today, thereafter announcing his retirement.

The 33 year old, was the captain of The Super Eagles and was also the most capped player of all time. Some of the highlights of his career include three 3rd place finishes for Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations and leading the Eagles to winning the trophy in 2013.

Enyeama, who plays for Lille in France, plans to spend the rest of his days focusing on his club career.
