Enyeama expelled from Nigeria camp, Musa named captain



The Super Eagles captain was kicked out of the team’s camp in Belgium after falling out with coach Sunday Oliseh on Tuesday, three days after burying his parent


The simmering problem in the camp of the Super Eagles between coach Sunday Oliseh and captain Vincent Enyeama boiled over on Tuesday when the goalkeeper was kicked out of the team;s hotel.

Enyeama arrived camp after Monday’s deadline, having been permitted to report late following Saturday’s burial of his mother in Akwa Ibom.

A month ago, the goalkeeper failed to report to camp in Abuja for the Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania, only for news to break that he had lost his mother.

However, it seems there will be no way back for him now as he was kicked out by security on Tuesday from the Verviers Hotel.

Officials in the Super Eagles camp told Goal that Ahmed Musa has now been named as captain ahead of returnee John Obi Mikel.

Goal also learnt that Oliseh was unnerved by the decision of Victor Moses not to come for the game and that the winger might not be called up again in his reign.

Toyin Ibitoye, Super Eagles spokesman who is awaiting issuance of visa to join the squad in Belgium, said he was not yet aware of the developments.

“The last I heard was that Enyeama had arrived camp earlier in the day, I cannot speak about further developments because I am not aware,” he told Goal.

The latest news that we have heard is that officials of the NFF are trying to help bring positive conclusion to the situation at hand.
