FIFA instructor rates Enyeama as one of Africa’s best

Louis Crayton, an instructor with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), on Tuesday in Abuja, rated Super Eagles' Vincent Enyeama as one of the best goalkeepers in Africa.

Crayton gave the rating on the sidelines of the FIFA Member Associations (MA) Goalkeeping Course at the Abuja National Stadium.

"Nigeria is one of the countries which have goalkeepers in foreign clubs, such as Lille FC of France where Enyeama is, and Hapoel Be'er Sheva in Israel where Austin Ejide is," he said. "Enyeama is also one of the best, if not the best goalkeeper in Africa."

Crayton, a former Liberian national team goalkeeper, said the aim of the course was to improve goalkeeping skills of the coaches who would then pass on the knowledge to players.

Crayton however acknowledged that Nigeria has talents which just needed to be nurtured and developed.

The course, which began on September 22 will end on September 28, with 10 national team goalkeeper trainers and 20 club trainers attending.
