Nigeria captain Vincent Enyeama may have played his last game for his country if the recommendations of the NFF disciplinary committee are anything to go by.
Top officials of the NFF have informed AfricanFootball.com the Eagles captain may lose his captaincy following his utterances on the safety of Kaduna before a recent Nigeria vs Chad Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in the northern Nigeria city.
NFF must come down hard on Enyeama
"The federation is not happy with the Eagles captain. And I am sorry to say if the leadership decided to follow the recommendations of the disciplinary committee to the letter, then maybe Vincent Enyeama may have played his last game for the Super Eagles,” said one official.
"Even if he is recalled to the national team, he may no longer wear the captain’s armband because the NFF view his actions before and after the game against Chad as bad example for other players, also he didn't show up for the disciplinary committee hearing."
The official added: "You see what has happened to Keshi, it’s the disciplinary committee's recommendations so if Enyeama escaped their recommendations, then it must be a divine intervention."
Enyeama was first capped in 2001 and he is now the most capped Nigeria star with 101 appearances.
