Bio

The first-choice goalkeeper for the Super Eagles, Enyeama is back for his second World Cup appearance after serving as a backup in 2002. He helped Nigeria to a scoreless draw versus England in group play in 2002, and with the exception of the 2008 African Nations Cup, he has been the team's starter. Enyeama posted eight clean sheets in qualifying leading up to South Africa and allowed four goals in 10 matches overall. At the African Cup of Nations in January, he posted four clean sheets and helped the Super Eagles to a third-place finish. He took the winning penalty kick in a quarterfinal victory over Zambia. Voted the best player in the Israeli Premier League twice, Enyeama has very good reflexes and is above average at 1-on-1 situations in the run of play. He has spent the last five seasons at the club level in Israel, playing for Bnei Yehuda from 2005-07 before joining his current team of Hapoel Tel-Aviv in 2007. A solid offensive player from the 12-yard spot, Enyeama also has eight goals with Hapoel.
