Enyeama stops penalty on return

Former Nigeria international Vincent Enyeama played his first game in over
seven months as the reserve team of Lille beat Croix Football IC 3-1 in the
Championnat National 2 Group C, equivalent of fourth-tier.
Prior to stepping out onto the Complexe Sportif de Luchin (Camphin-en-
Pévèle) turf on Saturday evening, the 35-year-old last figured for Lille at any
level on April 15, 2017 when the first team lost 2-0 to Rennes in Ligue 1.
Having returned to full fitness, Enyeama agreed to play against Croix Football
IC and was impressive, and the highlight of his performance was saving a
penalty kick.
Enyeama expressed his pleasure at returning to action, posting on social
media : ‘’God has been so faithful.7 months and some weeks, God has taken
me up. I had my 1st game.
‘’I want to thank everyone that worked for this day to happen. God bless you
Enyeama will become Nigeria’s oldest player to feature at the World Cup if he
rescinds his decision to quit the national team and is selected for the
mundial by Gernot Rohr.
Legendary goalkeeper Peter Rufai is the oldest Nigerian to feature at the
World Cup, at the age of 34 years, 10 months and 4 days.
