The Nigeria Football Federation has re-confirmed that Super Eagles’ goalkeeper and skipper, Vincent Enyeama, will win his 100th cap for Nigeria if he features against Bolivia in an international friendly Uyo, Akwa Ibom State next week Thursday.

Reacting to a story in a section of the media that Enyeama has earned only 98 caps, the NFF’s spokesman, Ademola Olajire, said on Monday that Enyeama has won 99 caps and will earn his century when the Super Eagles file out against Bolivia at the Akwa Ibom Stadium, Uyo on March 26.

 “There is no doubt that a lot of people have done extensive research on this matter. However, we insist that he has won 99 caps. Some persons appear to have omitted from Enyeama’s file, the Nigeria/Jamaica friendly match at Loftus Road, London on May 18, 2002, when Enyeama came in for Ike Shorounmu at the start of the second half,” Olajire clarified
