According to the coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, former goalkepper and captain of the Nigeria senior national team Vincent Enyeama is so far giving him positive signals during discussions about a possible return to the team.

Rohr is keen on having the Lille shot stopper back in the team due to his experience and abilities, even though Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkepper Carl Ikeme isn’t doing so bad between the sticks for Nigeria.

The coach avoided a potential goal kepper crisis before Nigeria’s clash against Algeria in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers when Ikeme pulled out injured few days to the clash.

Daniel Akpeyi who was called in as a late minute replacement was between the sticks for Nigeria in their 3-1 win over Algeria, a sign of the lack of trust he has with the goalkeppers at his disposal.

” It’s been positive so far, we are yet to get to a point where he will say yes or no. I need him (Enyeama) in the team. We need his experience alongside Ikeme, then we can have a young talented goalkepper as understudy” Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” We will meet again in the coming days to talk further, I can’t put a time frame to when talks will take place but it’s very soon. Hopefully it will be positive”.
