The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) have included Vicente Enyeama in their African team of the decade.
IFFHS picked the team based on performance of players between the year 2011 to 2020.
Enyeama is the only Nigerian player on the list, while Senegal, Ivory Coast and Egypt contributed two.
Morocco, Algeria, Gabon and Ghana also had a player each, while former African champions Cameroon has no representative.
IFFHS took into consideration the performances and impact of the individual player on his club and national team and in that period Enyeama was the best African goalkeeper in Europe.
Vincent Enyeama was crucial to Nigeria’s victory at the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa and also helped the West African giants to last 16 at the FIFA 2014 world Cup.
Enyeama was also on song for his clubs, Bnei Yehuda Tell Aviv, Hapoel Tel Aviv, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Lille where he won the best African player award.
