Bordeaux end Enyeama’s clean-sheet record chase


Enyeama fails to pass the Ligue 1 record of 1,176 minutes held by Gaetan Huard during the 1992/93 season

The record-chasing quest of Super Eagles stand-in captain, Vincent

Enyeama. for Ligue 1’s record of longest minutes played without conceding a goal was punctured on Sunday as his team Lille were defeated 1-0 by Bordeaux.

The Super Eagles goalkeeper, who had kept a total of 11 straight clean sheets, was beaten by a 27th minute effort by Cameroonian midfielder, Landry N’Guemo.

Enyeama, who tallied a total of 1062 minutes before conceding the goal, thus failed to pass the Ligue 1 record of 1,176 minutes held by Gaetan Huard during the 1992/93 season with the same Bordeaux.

N’Guemo, the man who finally ended Enyeama’s fine run , scored just the sixth goal of a nine-year career that has seen him play League football in France and Scotland.

It is also his first goal in two years.

The last time he found the net was in Bordeaux’s 2-0 win over Rennes in a Ligue 1 game in May 2012.

The loss means that Lille are now four points behind leaders PSG with 36 points, while Bordeaux improved to sixth.

That nonetheless, Enyeama is still in the run for CAF African footballer of the year.
