Former Super Eaglesâ€™s goalkeeper, Dosu Joseph, has supported the decision of Samson Siasia, Eaglesâ€™ Chief Coach, not to include Vincent Enyeama in the 21-man list released yesterday ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Guinea at the Abuja National Stadium on 8 October.
Dosu, who was impressed with the list said the exclusion of Eaglesâ€™ first choice goalkeeper is in the best interest of the nation.
â€œThere is nothing wrong with the list Siasia released yesterday. The exclusion of Enyeama is to allow peace to reign in the Eagles. I think Siasia is guarding against what happened before Nigeriaâ€™s match against Madagascar. To me, he has taken a good decision,â€ he said.
Those who made the list for the Guinea cracker are Austin Ejide, Dele Aiyenugba, Chigozie Agbim, Joseph Yobo, Taye Taiwo, Chibuzor Okonkwo, Elderson Echiejile, Efe Ambrose, Dele Adeleye, John Mikel Obi, Joel Obi, Fengor Ogude, Kalu Uche, Obinna Nsofor and Ahmed Musa.
Others are Osaze Odemwingie, Ekigho Ehiosun, Ike Uche, Emmanuel Emenike, Peter Utaka, Chinedu Obasi and Brown Ideye. Gege Soriola, Emmanuel Ekpo, Nosa Igiebor, Ugo Ukah and Nnamdi Oduamadi will join the Eagles in London.
