Following Vincent Enyeama’s withdrawal, Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh has made a late replacement for the goalkeeper who may have pulled out due to recent brouhaha with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.
Oliseh has however handed a late invitation to Enyimba International of Aba goalie, Femi Thomas as replacement to Enyeama who pulled out of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
Oliseh, after much deliberation on the development told journalists at a media parley in Abuja on Wednesday that the situation is under control.
“Femi Thomas has been called up as late replacement for Vincent Enyeama, so there is no course for alarm. We won’t allow that to cause distraction because we already have a mandate”, Oliseh said.
It was gathered Enyeama did ask to be exonerated from the Tanzania tie in order to attend to pressing family issue.
The Lille OSC of France goalkeeper is automatically ruled out of this weekend’s tie against Tanzania billed for the National Stadium on 5 September in Dar es Salaam.
