Brussels - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has backed goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to remain in Super Eagles camp after row with Coach Sunday Oliseh.
Oliseh, who was physically angry over the late arrival of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to the team’s camp in Belgium, asked the player to shut up and be thrown out of camp by security operatives.
Nigeria will play two international friendlies against Congo DR on Thursday and Cameroon on Sunday in Belgium.
A bereaved Enyeama was in Nigeria last weekend to bury his late mother, who’s death saw the Eagles captain miss Nigeria’s last two games against Tanzania and Niger. That development did not go down well with Oliseh who did not show remorse over the Lille’s shot-stopper sad condition at the time.

Oliseh told media in September that the goalkeeper opted out of the Super Eagles ahead of their trip to Tanzania without an excuse.
Enyeama arrived Belgium late on Monday to meet an angry Oliseh who ordered him out of the team’s Hotel Verviers camp, and subsequently named Ahmed Musa as captain for the two friendly games.
But the NFF would douse the tension as they waded into the matter.
“It’s true that there was a little misunderstanding in the camp of @NGSuperEagles, but the matter has been resolved. Enyeama remains in camp,” the NFF said on Twitter.
With the latest development, Nigerians wait to see who stands in between the sticks for the Super Eagles two friendlies, as well as who captains the side.
Enyeama is Nigeria’s longest serving player with 101 appearances for the Super Eagles.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
