SUPER Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has said that he has not yet called time on his distinguished international career.

The 31-year-old made his debut for the Super Eagles in 2002 and has gone on to rack 94 caps for the national team.

He hinted after the 2014 Fifa World Cup that he would quit the Eagles but has now stated that he still has unfinished business with the reigning African champions.

“I never said I will never play for the Super Eagles again. I only said I will consult with my family which is a normal thing to do. I am still very much a national team player,” Enyeama said.

The Lille goalkeeper was speaking moments after he received an award for excellence presented by the Guvaps Management, organizers of the annual Ibom Football Awards in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Enyeama said he was pleased with the accolade and promised to work harder in future.

“I am really pleased with this award. I want to thank the Guvaps management for this. I have won many accolades in my career but to be honoured by my people in Akwa Ibom State is special.

“Charity begins at home so this means a lot to me. I will continue working harder to achieve even more,” he said.

Enyeama began his professional football education at Ibom Stars in 1999 before proceeding to two-time African club champions, Enyimba where he made 100 appearances and scored 10 goals between 2001 and 2004.

In 2005 Enyeama moved to Israeli club, Bnei Yehuda. He spent three seasons at Hapoel Tel Aviv before joining Lille in 2011.
