Lagos - Nigeria captain and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama earned his 100th cap on Wednesday but the Ugandans spoiled the party for the Lille LOSC custodian as the Super Eagles suffered a 1-0 loss at the Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo, Supersport reports.
Enyeama became the 23rd African and only the second Nigerian men's footballer to reach the magic 100-mark of appearances.
