Former Nigeria international Garba Lawal has stated that erstwhile Super Eagles goalie, Vincent Enyeama does not need to be recalled by the Gernot Rohr.
The Lille man had announced his international career in 2015 but the Super Eagles gaffer voiced his desire to have 34-year-old back after his side lost 2-0 to South Africa.
However, the former Elfsborg midfielder feels otherwise, insisting the German could find a quality replacement for Enyeama in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
“Who knows whether Vincent [Enyeama] is going to come back to the Super Eagles?” Lawal told Goal.
“He has already announced his retirement from the national team but I don’t know why the coach [Gernor Rohr] is still counting on him.
“You cannot force someone to come back when he is done. Why not let him be and forge ahead. To me, I respect his retirement because he has paid his dues and seen it all.”
“He doesn’t need to force him to come back when he can look for alternatives. Maybe, he has his personal interest in him,” he continued.
“We have a lot of good goalkeepers in the local league. Back home here, we have some good hands that can complement Ikeme. I don’t know why he is counting on Vincent.”
Nigeria will face Cameroon in a crucial two-legged World Cup qualifier in Uyo on August 28 and Yaounde on September 1.
