Former Super Eagles goalkeeper and captain Vincent Enyeama has disclosed his best outing while in Nigeria’s colours.

The former LIlle safe pair of hands revealed the clash against Argentina at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa stands out from the other matches he played for the Super Eagles.

Although Nigeria lost that encounter on a sunny afternoon at Ellis Park courtesy of a Gabriel Heinze header inside the opening six minutes, it was Enyeama who took home the plaudits as he kept Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, at bay.

In what was a Messi vs Enyeama battle on that day in Johannesburg, the former Enyimba man denied Messi by producing world-class saves, and also kept the scoreline respectable for Nigeria.

Enyeama has now revealed that match ranked on top of the best games he featured for Nigeria. The 37-year-old said this on his Twitter account after another user uploaded a video of his highlights from that encounter.

Enyeama last featured for Nigeria in 2015, but he’s still country’s joint record cap holder with 102 appearances for the National team.
