Super Eagles coach Rohr seeks Enyeama's comeback

02 September 2016, 14:09

Abuja - New Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has said he will soon meet with Vincent Enyeama to discuss a comeback by the Lille goalkeeper to the Super Eagles.

Former Nigeria skipper Enyeama quit international football in October after a spat with then Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.

His place has since been taken by Carl Ikeme, who features for English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Rohr has been handed the task of qualifying Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup and he has maintained the country will need their best players to achieve the goal.

"I live in France and I know Enyeama. He's a good player and I do not know why he is no longer playing for Nigeria," said the Franco-German coach.

"We have spoken and perhaps I hope to meet him soon because we need our best players for us to have the best chance to qualify for the World Cup."

Nigeria are drawn in a tough qualifying group for Russia 2018 with Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia.

They begin their qualifying campaign on October 3 in Zambia, before hosting Algeria the following month.

"It's my mission to qualify Nigeria to Russia 2018," he said.

"Nigeria have the best players in Africa and I have the German mentality to bring good organisation and discipline to this team."
