Ikpeba argued that Enyeama’s experience will be valuable for the team following the seeming hard group the Eagles found themselves.

“Experience is the key, this is the World Cup and he could be like mentor to other goalkeepers, he has paid his dues,” he said.

“At the 1998 World Cup, we suffered when we brought back a goalkeeper who was finished.”

Eguaveon a former defender added.

“Vincent is experienced and he will bring more competition to the team because the other goalkeepers now feel very relaxed,” he said.

“He is a top-class goalkeeper, who should get his chance in friendlies leading to the World Cup.

“There will not be many games to play before the World Cup and so fresh call-ups will take a while to settle in.”
