Vincent Enyeama, ex-goalkeeper of the Super Eagles, has been named among the top 10 goalkeepers in Europe for the 2015/16 season by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory.
The ranking was done taking into account the number of goals conceded per match, number of minutes per goal, number of passes per match, number of saves per match, number of saves per goal conceded and the percentage of saves.
The 33-year-old was number 6 in the ranking behind the likes of Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich, Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid, Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus, Kevin Trapp of PSG and Claudio Bravo of Barcelona.
Coming behind Enyeama on the list are Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris, Alphonse Areola of Villareal, Keylor Navas of Real Madrid and Pepe Reina of Napoli in the list of 10. Other great keepers like Petr Cech of Arsenal and David De Gea of Manchester United weren’t on the list.
The Nigerian missed out on winning silverware with Lille this season as they lost 2-1 to PSG in Saturday’s French Cup final.
He earned a record 101 caps with the Super Eagles and won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations title before his International career came to a sudden end last year.
