Vincent Enyeama has been pardoned and will continue as the captain of the Super Eagles. This was confirmed by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
After making unguarded comments about the choice of Kaduna for last month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad which the former African champions won 2-0, there were initial thoughts that the NFF chiefs had planned to strip Enyeama of his role as captain of the Super Eagles after he was queried.
Speaking to our source in Abuja, chairman of the NFF Disciplinary Committee, Christopher Green said that the issue has been settled, and Enyeama will not be fined.
“Enyeama is the captain of the Super Eagles, and he will continue in that capacity.
“The issue has been dealt with administratively, and I can tell you that there is no more problem as Enyeama has been forgiven for his utterances.
“He is eligible to play for the Super Eagles any day and anytime because he does not own us anything,” Green said.
Enyeama is now expected to be named in the Super Eagles’ squad that will travel to Dares Salam to face Tanzania in September.
