collapsed following regarding the structure of the deal, meanwhile

and the Ligue 1 outfit.
Enyeama started his Ibom Stars, Enyimba, Iwuanyanwu Nationale, Bnei
Yehuda, Hapoel Tel Aviv and Lille also played 101 times for the Super
Eagles – making him the most-capped international for the West African
nation – winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.He
is his country’s most successful goalkeeper after playing in five
Nations Cup tournaments – in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2013 – and was
part of the Nigeria squad at 2002, 2010 and 2014 World Cup tournaments.
