Lille Metropole goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama recieved an award from world governing body FIFA on Tuesday for his exploits in French Ligue 1, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The 33-year-old former Nigeria captain who recently passed the 100th Ligue 1 appearance for Lille took to Instagram to share the news to his fans.
“This is how goodness and mercy will follow you all this month of March. First day of the month, FIFA got me a trophy for hardwork, dedication, success,” he wrote under a photograph of himself with a plaque.
“Thank you @FIFA. I want to wish everyone reading this message a wonderful month of March. God did it for me. God will do it for us.”
Enyeama, one of the few Nigerian players with over 100 caps, retired from international football last year after falling out with Sunday Oliseh, who was then the Super Eagles head coach.
He has conceded 20 goals and made 49 saves in 25 games for Lille this season.
