The Super Eagles number one goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has said he will return to the team in time for another round of qualifiers in October.
The team’s assistant captain, according to Coach Stephen Keshi, had pulled out of the qualifying matches against Congo and South Africa to attend to some pressing family problems.
In a chat with journalists on Thursday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, Enyeama said he would be fully back to action in October.
“I will be open to the games in October. It’s my pleasure to represent Nigeria and so I won’t say no to Nigeria,” said Enyeama.
On Keshi’s return as coach of the Super Eagles, Enyeama said, “This helps for continuity and unity. I’m so thrilled he is back on board. Nigerians should support the team. We want to defend our title in Morocco.”
After a disappointing series of negotiations with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Keshi had final reached an agreement with the Sports Minister, Tammy Danagogo to coach the team for the qualifiers.
Enyeama, who was replaced by David Obiozor, a Nigeria Premier league Goalkeeper, for the Congo and South Africa qualifiers, wished the team all the best.
“I therefore wish them the very best against Congo on Saturday. I hope it will be an easy game, they will not struggle and we will win well,” he said.
Nigeria will face Congo on Saturday at the U.J Esuene stadium in Calabar at 5 p.m.
