Enyeama presently has 99 caps, and will make it 100 when Nigeria takes on Bolivia in an international friendly at the Akwa Ibom Stadium on Thursday, March 26.
“Nothing matches being recognized by your own country. I am very excited at the prospect of reaching 100 caps, and more so at the decision by the NFF to honour me on the day.
“The NFF media department has also been speaking with me and I have followed the publicity they have generated about it. It is a delight. I am also excited by the fact that it will happen in Uyo, my hometown. What a great honour!”
“Yeah, I can tell you that is one match I will always remember. I was highly inspired, and although we lost, I was selected the Man of the Match. We lost 0-1 but Lionel Messi did not score. That was some sort of joy for me, Enyeama told NFF website.
