However, the OSC Lille star’s enviable Super Eagles career was brought to a brusque end after a fractured relationship with former Nigeria coach, Sunday Oliseh.

Enyeama had arrived at the national team training camp in Belgium late having had extra time off agreed following the death of his mother. On arrival, he discovered he had been stripped of the captaincy, which was handed to Ahmed Musa.
