Enyeama thanks media, fans after record 101 caps

15 June 2015, 16:45

Lagos - Nigeria captain Vincent Enyeama has thanked the media and fans after he broke Nigeria's all time appearance record.

Enyeama, who made his debut for the Super Eagles in 2002, won his 101st cap as he kept a clean sheet to help Nigeria defeat Chad 2-0 last weekend in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

It means he now breaks Joseph Yobo's previous record of 100 appearances for Nigeria and he says he has the media and fans to thank for their support over the years.

"I really must thank the media and the fans for their support all these years," he said.

"When I started I didn't know it would get to this so I have to thank you guys (media) and the fans for everything.

"I thank God for everything and I hope the support will continue," he said.

The 32-year old however claimed he wasn't even aware of the feat before it was brought to his attention.

"I wasn't even aware of this," he said in surprise, "I wasn't aware and I probably wasn't expecting it but I still have to give God the glory for this opportunity," Enyeama added.
