Super Eagles and Lille of France’s goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has asked to be excused from the  AFCON qualifier match against Tanzania.

“Enyeama personally asked to be withdrawn from  the Super Eagles team for Tanzania,” coach Sunday Oliseh said in Abuja on Wednesday while speaking with the media.

Oliseh said the absence of the goalkeeper will not affect the team. ” My philosophy is based on the team being the star…everybody doing well because the team is doing well,” he said.

In the absence of Enyeama, new invitee, Carl Ikeme may be selected for his first cap.  The match will played on Saturday.
