Vincent Enyeama’s wife, Promise took to Instagram to speak on her husband’s retirement from the national team.
In a very lengthy post, the woman who has been with Enyeama from the early days of his career wrote:
“Yes! You did well! Hold your head up high my love! I’m so proud of you and your dedicated service to your fatherland for 13 good years. I have witnessed your passion and commitment firsthand. You spent sleepless nights just to analyze every goal you conceded, even if there was nothing you could do to save them. You played through injuries, pains and fatigue. You took the bullets of unjust criticisms, biased and false reporting/information, just to let peace reign.
You missed important family moments to honor national call-ups. Thank God for the opportunity/privilege to serve the nation. Thank God for the strength/skill to carry out your duties. Thank God for all the memories ( good and bad). You leave as a hero. You bow out as a legend. Our children, grandchildren and future generations will hear and speak of your great deeds. God bless you my husband. God bless Nigeria.”
Enyeama, who recently buried his mother, announced his retirement from international football after a fall out with Nigerian national team coach, Sunday Oliseh.
