The Nigerian FA president Pinnick has hinted that the country’s football house are willing to organise a testimonial match for former captain Vincent Enyeama because of his true service to the nation.


The NFF boss said: “I told him (Enyeama) that he did so well for Nigeria over the past 13-and-half years that he had been there, and by all means, is deserving of a honourable exit,”

“Whatever the situation, whether he decides to return to the team or not, the NFF will organise a worthy testimonial match in his honour because he served the nation so well.

“However, the head coach is in full charge of the team and the camp at all times, and that fact must be respected. The NFF will support and respect the decision of the head coach of any of the national teams at all times.

“Both Oliseh and Enyeama are true heroes of Nigeria football, if you look at what they achieved at different times. But Oliseh is head coach now and in charge of the team. We will continue to respect his contract; our role as a federation is advisory.”
