Emenike Quits Super Eagles, Apologises For Goal Drought

By Johnny Edward and Adeboye Amosu:

Al Ain striker Emmanuel Emenike has announced his retirement from the Super Eagles, two weeks after former captain Vincent Enyeama also called it quits with the senior national team.

Emenike made the shock announcement on Monday night via his Instagram account Chiboy_ee29.

Emenike wrote : “No more Eagles career! After 5 great years, I am happy to announce that I have put full-stop to my National team career for the sake of national peace,” insinuating that he might also have fallen out with coach Sunday Oliseh, like Enyeama did just before the Lille keeper retired.

“It’s a pleasure for me to have played for this great country. I never regretted it and I think its the best time to end it. Millions thanks to all the fans who have been very supportive during the good and bad times.

“I am very proud of my performance, I am proud of my team mates and I am very proud of the nation called ‘Nigeria’.

“My AFCON gold medal is a sign of great achievement, My AFCON topscorer award speaks a lot about my commitment and dedication to the team. Super Eagles is a camp not a family house, and it shouldn’t be a threat zone for any individual. I have done according to our national anthem.

“All my dreams came true in the national team, I dreamt to win Nations Cup for Nigeria after 20-years, I dreamt to play at the World Cup as well as to make a name for myself… In the space of five years, I got them. I’m a winner!”

Despite claiming that all his international dreams have been fulfilled, Emenike apologised to fans for his recent goal drought having not scored for Nigeria in two years.

“For every dissapointed fan, maybe due to my inability to re-establish my goal scoring instinct for Super Eagles, I will like to say I’m sorry but the ones I had scored counted well for the team,” he added.

“As long as Nigeria remains, you and I will always remember the name ‘Emenike’. “Finally, I am happy to make a bow and continue supporting the team every time.

Currently playing on loan at Dubai club Al Ain, Emenike debuted for Nigeria at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos during a friendly game against Sierra Leone in 2011.

  1. Wise decision, with the likes of Ighalo, Musa, Simon Moses, Victor Moses, the threat of yet to be capped Iheanacho, Isaac Success etc, and so many promising and in form talents hungry to do Nigeria proud, we can only thank you for your exploits at the 2013 Afcon. You lost form and would not recover, you know Oliseh to be a straight forward person who would tell you the truth like; you’ve lost and if you don’t recover I will drop you, or I need to build my team on a younger captain. Now you want to confuse and make Nigerians believe that the Super Eagles coach is unreasonable and he threatens people. Men you can’t stand the competition and you have retired, don’t leave with a sore feeling blaming others for your failure to regain form.

    1. Gbich, spot on !!! You spoke my mind brother.

    Emenike did what he was supposed to do. The competition is getting tougher lately and he realized he might not be able to cope . He made the right decision at the right time to avoid being relegated to the bench Which has become obvious to every fan out there. He has done his best for the Eagles and it’s now time to move on. Thanks Emenike for your service to Nigeria Super Eagles.

  5. I am trying to remember in my almost 25 years of following Nigerian football when players had to leave national team the way Enyeama and now Emenike left.Something must be wrong with the leadership of the team. The earlier NFF check this, the better. Even if Emeneke hasnt scored since 2013, nobody will forget his heroic performance in Afcon 2013 and the 2 goals he scored in Malawi during the world cup play off match.

    All the best in your career Emmanuel.

  6. I would like mikel 2 follow d same way way emmanuel and vincent has jst did.
