Hislop tips Enyeama to attract 'Big Four' offers
allafrica.com


Shaka Hislop has added his voice to experts who expect Nigeria international goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to move this summer to a top European club after a superlative World Cup showing.

"I was impressed by Enyeama at this World Cup, but probably because he has been playing in Israel may have stopped his moving to a top league. However, after what he showed at the World cup, playing against top profile teams like Argentina, I would expect the 'Big Boys' to come in for him quickly," said Hislop, a former Newcastle and West Ham goalkeeper himself.

Enyeama posted a man_of_the_match performance in Nigeria's opening Group B match of the World Cup as he almost single_handedly stood between Lionel Messi and company and a cricket score. Argentina managed only a 1-0 win.

The 27-year-old Enyeama has been Nigeria's number one since the 2002 World Cup and he has also been outstanding for his Israeli club Hapoel Tel Aviv.

And after following his World Cup showings speculations were rife he is on his way to England. A few years ago, he attended trials at English Premier League club Bolton Wanderers.

Kingson remind me of Ince

Brilliant one moment.

Blooper highlight reel on many occasions

Kingson have reflexes and daz bout it. 

Enyeama for me was truly impressive...a much better overall goalie AND has the reflexes to boot.

   Not to take anything away from Enyeama who did have a good tournament, but of all the African 'keepers, the South African was really the one that I liked best.  His lone full game against Mexico was excellent and the red card he got against uruguay hurt his exposure.
