Vincent Enyeama’s wife, Promise has praised her husband’s decision to retire from international football.
Mrs Enyeama said her husband played through pains and fatigue whenever he was called up but his love for the country never prevented him from representing the nation.
She begged her husband to let peace reign as he bows out of international football.
She took to Instagram to give her thoughts on Vincent’s retirement. She said: “Yes! You did well! Hold your head up high my love! I’m so proud of you and your dedicated service to your fatherland for 13 good years. I have witnessed your passion and commitment firsthand.
@You spent sleepless nights just to analyze every goal you conceded, even if there was nothing you could do to save them. You played through injuries, pains and fatigue. You took the bullets of unjust criticisms, biased and false reporting/information, just to let peace reign.
You missed important family moments to honor national call-ups. Thank God for the opportunity/privilege to serve the nation. Thank God for the strength/skill to carry out your duties. Thank God for all the memories ( good and bad). You leave as a hero. You bow out as a legend. Our children, grandchildren and future generations will hear and speak of your great deeds. God bless you my husband. God bless Nigeria.”
