Dosu commends Enyeama

24 June 2013, 15:00

Lagos - A former Super Eagles' goalkeeper, Joseph Dosu, on Monday described the team's current first choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, as an invaluable asset, who had remained consistent.

Dosu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that, in spite of the goals Enyeama conceded in the ongoing Confederations Cup in Brazil, he still remained the best.

NAN reports that Super Eagles on Sunday got drubbed 3-0 by World Champions, Spain, in a Group B encounter at Fortaleza.

Enyeama's efforts could not save the Eagles from the rampaging Spaniards, who brought their brilliance to bear on the African champions.

"You can't take anything away from Enyeama. Yesterday, he saved us from conceding more goals. He found himself in a one-on-one situation with the Spaniards on several occasions.

"He has been consistent for the past 10 years, he has been doing very well. Our reserve goalkeepers are also no pushovers.

"He is one of the best goalkeepers in Africa today. I hope and pray that he gets a better club so he can stay in shape," Dosu, a member of Nigeria's 1996 Olympic team, said.

Dosu told NAN that grooming a worthy successor to Enyeama should not be rushed.

"It will happen soon, Agbim is a work in progress.

"Enyeama didn’t become the number one choice overnight, he paid his dues. Austin Ejide and Agbim will also have their own opportunities to showcase their talents," he said.
