Former Super Eagles captain and goalkepper Vincent Enyeama was the star of the show despite Lille’s 1-2 loss to PSG in a Ligue 1 tie yesterday.
Enyeama returned back to the line up for Lille after missing their last two games due to injury, and the shot stopper immediately showed the club what they have been missing.
He made save after save in the first half, and probably had more touches than some outfield players of Lille, before he was finally beaten by a flick header from Edinson Cavani.
The peak of his saves was denying Angel Di Maria well hit drive at close range, a save which has been severally reviewed by the French media, with most terming it almost unbelievable.
French Magazine L’equipe wondered if his wrist is made of iron judging by how he flicked the drive at close range to deny the Argentine.
His heroics didn’t earn his side a point as he was beaten by a late goal by Lucas Moura which was scored from an offside position as seen by the television replays.
Players of Lille lead by Enyeama protested the goal but it stood, and Enyeama was even booked by the referee for angrily confronting the assistant referee after the controversial goal.
