The loss came at an added cost after Enyeama picked up an injury, ruling him out of this weekend's friendly against Bafana Bafana, the side who denied Nigeria a place at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations following the pair's 2-2 draw in the final round of qualifying.
Stand-in Nigeria coach Daniel Amokachi is now expected to bring in Warri Wolves 'keeper Daniel Akpeyi as a replacement for Enyeama.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
