Lagos - Former Nigeria goalkeeper Dosu Jospeh has praised the return of Vincent Enyeama for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan.
Enyeama was excused from the Super Eagles' first two qualifiers against Congo and South Africa because of personal issues.
However, interim coach Stephen Keshi has recalled France-based goal-minder for the back-to-back encounters against the Falcons of Jediane.
Jospeh believes the 32-year-old's return will be a stabalising factor for the west Africans, who have yet to register in a win after losing at home against Congo and drawing away against Bafana Bafana.

"It is good that Enyeama is coming back. We all know that he missed the other two matches because he had to attend to a family matter," the former Eagles keeper told the Daily Trust.
"His presence will inspire the Eagles against Sudan. Anytime he is in the team, he helps in organising the defence. He gives confidence to the defenders and that is what he will do against Sudan.”
"Eagles cannot afford to drop any point against Sudan. They must grab the six points to stand any chance of going to Morocco to defend their title."Nigeria are currently third in Group A with only one point registered thus far. Congo are the leaders of the group, followed by South Africa.
