Enyeama Ranked Nigeria’s Best Footballer in Europe
Former Nigeria skipper Vincent Enyeama is one of two players of Nigerian descent who made EA Sport’s top 20 list after a ranking of players in the Premier League, French Ligue 1, Bundesliga and La Liga.
Enyeama, who has since taken over the no 1 goalkeeping duties at Lille OSC, made the cut.
Enyeama, 34, was rated among the top 20 players in the division after an inspired campaign last term where he joined the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Angel di Maria on the French football all-star XI.
The former Enyimba shot-stopper was ranked 11th overall with a score of 83, tying him with eight other players who made the same rating.
He was awarded 78 points in diving, 80 in handling, 77 in kicking, 90 in reflexes, 50 for his speed while he got a rating of 78 for positioning.
Elsewhere, Bayern Munich’s Austria international David Alaba, who has Nigerian blood flowing in his veins, made the top 20 Bundesliga players with an overall score of 87.
Alaba, born to a Nigerian father and Austrian mother, has been one of the standout performers in the all-conquering Bayern side.
