–Eagles goalie faces late fitness test
Super Eagles captain and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is to undergo a late fitness test ahead of Saturday’s crucial AFCON qualifier as he is nursing a shoulder injury, officials have disclosed.
Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Ike Shorunmu said Nigeria’s No 1 shot stopper Vincent Enyeama would undergo a late fitness test to know if he would be ready for the AFCON qualifier against Congo this weekend.
Ike confirmed that Vincent Enyeama has suffered a slight shoulder injury when he featured for French Ligue 1 side Lille in a recent game.
“I cannot say now if Vincent would be in between the posts for the game against Congo this weekend,” Ike stated.
“Vincent has a slight right shoulder injury which he sustained while in action in his club. But he has seen the team doctors who have communicated to me that it’s not too serious.
“So during training I would confirm if it’s good or not and that would determine whether or not he would be in goal for the game.”
