Super Eagles skipper Vincent Enyeama was sent off in Lille’s 1-1 draw against Stade Rennes at the Roazhon Park on Friday night.
The 33-year-old shot stopper who has kept four clean sheets so far in Ligue 1 was issued a straight red card in the 70th minute after he fouled Giovanni Sio Yann in the box.
Sofiane Boufal had Lille into the lead in the 49th minute before Paul-Georges Ntep redeemed himself in the 74th minute after his spot kick was saved.
In Germany, Leon Balogun watched from the bench as FSV Mainz defeated TSG Hoffenheim 3-1 at the Coface Arena.
Both Enyeama, who was recently bereaved, and Balogun have been called up by coach Sunday Oliseh for next month’s international friendlies against Congo and Cameroun in Belgium.
