By Johnny Edward:

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama kept his seventh clean sheet of the season in his 140th Ligue 1 appearance for Lille in their 0-0 draw against Olympique Marseiile on Friday at ​t​he Pierre-Mauroy stadium, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Enyeama, who joined Lille in the 2011/12 season, made two crucial saves during the encounter to ensure the Les Dogues secured a point and moved above Montpellier into 14th.

The 34-year-old former Nigerian international saved the only attempt Marseille had on goal in the first half from Remy Cabella.

The Nigerian was needed again at the start of the second half, as he got down low to keep another Cabella shot out, before Payet let fly from range as he drove towards goal but was unable to find the target.

The draw also means Marseille stay fifth in the Ligue 1 standings​.

.Eneyeama has made 68 saves and has conceded 36​ so far this term in 29 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
