Abuja - Former Nigeria international Garba Lawal has slammed Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama after the shot-stopper allegedly tore up the query he was issued by the Nigeria Football Federation for making ‘unguarded statements’ against Kaduna as a venue for the June 13 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad.
Enyeama, who has been summoned to appear before the NFF Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday, was reported to have torn the shreds, a written query he was issued by the Glass House after he questioned the level of security in the Northern city of Kaduna ahead of the AFCON qualifier against Chad.
And Lawal, a former Super Eagles teammate of Enyeama’s has criticized the goalkeeper for not showing enough discipline.

“You have to be disciplined and you must be disciplined at all times when you play for the national team,” Lawal told a local radio station.
“Why would he make such a comment? As a professional player you don’t need to make such comments and now that they (disciplinary committee) have invited him why is he complaining?
“Is he the first to play for the national team? Nigeria is bigger than any player and if he doesn’t appear before the committee, he must accept any judgment they give. He must be called to order,” Lawal thundered.
The Disciplinary Committee will sit by 11am but it remains uncertain whether Enyeama will show up.
