EnyeamaVincent Enyeama has confirmed he is quitting international football with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Speaking to Channels Sports, Enyeama said that he does not want to disrupt the ongoing rebuilding process of Coach Sunday Oliseh.

Enyeama has checked out of the team’s hotel in Belgium and heading to his club in France.

On Tuesday, the Lille goalkeeper had a misunderstanding with Coach Oliseh and was asked to leave the camp of the team.

But after the intervention of the NFF, he was allowed to stay but it seems the goalie had already made the decision to quit.

Enyeama, who joined the team on Tuesday (October 6), had reportedly questioned Coach Oliseh’s choice of naming Ahmed Musa captain for the friendly games against DR Congo and Cameroon.

The coach did not like it and asked him to leave the team’s hotel and immediately made moves to call up Dele Alampasu.

President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, told Channels TV that evening that he had spoken with the coach and player and “the matter has been resolved and Enyeama would stay in camp”.

However, there were signs that the issues were still raging when on Wednesday, Vincent Enyeama took to his Instagram page to express disappointment.
