Vincent Enyeama At It Again, Extends Clean Slate To 15


The former Super Eagles safe hands, Vincent Enyeama has extended his clean slate to fifteen following a brilliant outing against Angers on Wednesday evening. Enyeama was in superb form for Lille as they played a 0-0 draw with Angers in the French topflight at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

According to, the former Maccabi Tel Aviv shot stopper’s 35th appearance in the French league and he did not disappoint as he kept the visitors at bay by denying them opportunities to score on a night where Angers were desperate for victory.

He stopped Gilles Sunu’s strike in the 10th minute before making another great save nine minutes later. Mohamed Yattara’s shot was heading to the goalkeeper’s right only for the ball to ricochet off Marko Basa and send it to Enyeama’s left – who brilliantly switched his weight back to make a breath-taking save.

Lille are currently sixth on the French log with 53 points from 35 games – a play which will earn them a ticket to next season’s Europa League competition.

The 33-year-old was recently named among the top 10 goalkeepers in Europe for the 2015/16 season by the Swissbased CIES Football Observatory  and nominated by the Professional Union of French Players (UNFP) for the best goalkeeper award in the French Ligue 1.

He was ranked the sixth best goalkeepers in the world, coming behind illustrious goalkeepers like Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich, Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid, Gianluigi Buon of Juventus, Kevin Trapp of PSG and Claudio Bravo of Barcelona. And coming behind him on the list were Tottenham’s Hugo Llori, Alphonse Areola of Villareal, Keylor Navas of Real Madrid and Pepe Reina of Napoli.

In France, the former Super Eagles star will contend with Steve Mandanda (Olympique Marseille), Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint Germain) and Stephane Ruffier (Saint-Ettiene) for the Ligue 1 golden glove.
