Enyeama looks back at France game

Nigeria international goalkeeper,
Vincent Enyeama believes Nigeria’s
Super Eagles would have been crowned
world champions at the 2014 Fifa
world cup if they had gone past France
in their round of 16 fixture.
The Super Eagles lost the game 0-2 to Les Blues at
the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha, Brasília on
June 30 but Enyeama insists that things could have
gone so differently.
“It was a great one (tournament for us) even though
we were eliminated by France,” Enyeama told the
Ligue 1 show.
Germany went on to win the title after disposing of
France in the quarters, a result that was met with
surprise by Enyeama.
“I was actually expecting them (France) to go past
Germany because if we had beaten France, I am sure
we would have given Germany a very good run for
their money.
“Germany, for us, was not really much of a problem
and we just wanted to get past France to build our
confidence.
“But that is life, it goes on,” he added philosophically.
Enyeama is widely expected to be named Nigeria’s
new captain following the retirement of Joseph Yobo
after the world cup.
The 31-year-old who has been capped 94 times by
Nigeria at senior level has been called up for the
Super Eagles’ 2015 Africa Nations Cup qualifier
against Congo on September 6.
