Vincent Enyeama has announced that he will no longer play for the Super Eagles.
His decision may not be unconnected with his bust-up with coach Sunday Oliseh this week, after he arrived at the national team camp in Belgium.
Enyeama was permitted to report late, following the burial of his late mother in Akwa Ibom. When he tried to explain during dinner, Oliseh reportedly ordered him to sit down.
There was an exchange of words and Oliseh called security officials to throw the Lille keper out.
Although, the NFF intervened in the situation and Enyeama stayed back, he has now decided to quit international football.
He posted on Instagram on Thursday morning: “I have fought a good fight for more than 13years.I have finished my course,I have kept the faith and sang the anthem with passion.henceforth,there is laid for me a crown which only GOD can reward me for my 13years of national services.God bless NIGERIA.from HENCEFORTH,I am no more the captain of the NIGERIAN senior football team,I am no more the goalie of the team,I am out of the team. I am no more available for international duties.I want to say thank you to every Nigerian fan and supporter worldwide.

Enyeama won 101 caps with Nigeria – the highest ever.
