NFF, Enyeama on war-path

03 September 2015, 10:05

Abuja - There seems to be a cold war between the Nigeria Football Federation and Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama following the latter's withdrawal from the team to face Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier this weekend.

Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh had confirmed on Wednesday that Enyeama had withdrawn from the squad to face Tanzania without reason, admitting that the development had put him in a 'complicated situation'.

Unconfirmed reports however emerged later on Wednesday that the 33-year old had lost his mother.

Confirming the unfortunate incident, the Nigeria Football Federation, in a rather bizarre reaction, and rather than express its sadness and shock at Enyeama's bereavement, announced that the player was yet to inform them of his mother's demise.

"Please note: Goalie Vincent Enyeama is yet to inform NFF or Super Eagles coaches about the loss of his mother," the NFF official Twitter account tweeted at 8.20pm.

The tweet however stirred some controversy as the NFF were chided and derided for showing such insensitivity to Enyeama's misfortune, a development which led to the tweet being subsequently deleted.

It remains unclear how the situation will boil down however, but some unconfirmed reports suggests the goalkeeper may have played his last game for Nigeria.
