Vincent Enyeama, the former goalie of the Nigeria national team, is one of Nigeria’s richest footballers. During 2002 World Cup hosted by the pair of Korea and Japan, Enyeama marked his debut against England as the shot-stopper of the Nigeria national team. Since he marked his Super Eagles debut with that match which ended in a 0-0 draw, Enyeama has traveled around and played professional football in France and Israel.
While Enyeama was the shot-stopper of Enyimba –a Nigerian-based professional team –he helped the team in winning the CAF Champions League for two consecutive seasons. This marked a remarkable feat in the Nigerian Professional League, making Enyimba the first football club to achieve it.
In consequence of a quarrel with Sunday Oliseh –a former Super Eagles fellow –Vincent Enyeama resigned from the Nigeria national team only a few years ago. Precisely, Vincent Enyeama has made his mark in the Ligue 1 [French league] as the number 1 goalie of Lille FC. Annually, the Nigerian star earns the total of £1.8 million and his current net worth is estimated at $7 million.
