Lawmaker Attributes Super Eagles Loss To Congo To Enyeama’s Exit
Obinna Ogba, the Senator representing Ebonyi Central, on Friday attributed Super Eagles’ 0-2 loss to DR Congo in an international friendly on the exit of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.
Ogba spoke in Abuja that the team was psychologically affected by the development in camp.
He, however, faulted the manner in which the goalkeeper was frustrated out of the team.
”Enyeama’s exit weighed the team down in that particular encounter.
”I don’t know exactly what went wrong and why somebody who has saved this country in international matches should be thrown out like that.
‘’He is still in form, young and I don’t see why he should be shown the way out of the team or forced to retire. I don’t think it’s proper,’’ he said.
Ogba advised the country’s football managers to make effort to recall the goalkeeper, adding that “ they should know what to do’’.
The lawmaker described the 0-2 loss to DR Congo as “a big embarrassment’’, saying that “it is unacceptable’’
