NFF boss rejects Vincent Enyeama return for 2018 World Cup

Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick has rejected calls for Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr to include veteran goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in his plans for the Russia 2018 World Cup. The Super Eagles will make their sixth appearance in the football showpiece in the June 14th to July 15th tournament, and the three-time African champions have been facing goalkeeping crisis after their choice keeper Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia last year.

The development sparked calls for out-of-favour Lille shot-stopper Enyeama to come out of international retirement to help Nigeria at the World Cup.
