Vincent Enyeama’s impressive display in Lille’s 1-0 win over Montpellier at the weekend which ensured he has not conceeded a goal in 495 minutes of action (five consecutive Lique 1 games) has earned the Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper plaudits from both his manager and team-mates.
The 31-year-old produced a classy display between the posts for Les Dogues as they beat the 2011/12 Ligue 1 champions in their own back yard to stay third.
The former Hapoel Tel Aviv star pulled off a number of crucial saves in the tight affair including a penalty save,with boss Rene Girard singling him out for praise after the match.
“For us, this is a great victory. It’s nice to get the three points. Vincent (Enyeama) took out a big game, he’s a cat. He managed three and four important decisions when he was called to action, this is not simple,” the manager told the club’s official website.
