former England international midfielder Joe Cole who recently announced his retirement from competitive football says former Super Eagles captain and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is the best shot stopper he played with during his career.
While speaking on his favorite five a-side team, Cole reckoned the former Lille shot stopper as one of the best he played with and rated his abilities more than that of former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina and his long term teammate at Chelsea Petr Cech.
According to Cole, Enyeama’s shot stopping ability as second to none and his presence can guarantee a win for any team in a five a-side contest.
” I could’ve gone with Petr Cech, David Seaman, Pepe Reina but if we’re talking five a-side, this guy ( Enyeama) is the best shot stopper. You knew if this geezer was in your team in a five a-side, you’re winning “, he said in an interview monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com.
The decision of Cole to pick Enyeama came as a surprise because he only spent a year with the Nigerian while he was on loan at Lille from Liverpool in 2011. Same season when the French side campaigned in the UEFA Champions League.
