I am not 'special' - Enyeama



Nigeria goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has played down talks about his record of never losing in any quarterfinal match at the Afcon he has appeared in.

Enyeama was in goal throughout as Nigeria's Super Eagles tripped pre-tournament favourites, the Elephants of Cote d'Ivoire, by 2-1 in Rustenburg in a quarterfinal game at the Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper when asked about his record of never losing in the quarterfinal of the Afcon he has taken part in his country's squad said: "I don't know how it happens as I'm not the Special One."

He further said: "I can only thank God for all of the achievements as I don't care about statistics."

The Maccabi Tel Aviv goalkeeper has been in goal throughout the 360 minutes of Nigeria's participation at the ongoing Afcon in South Africa.

The former Enyimba custodian has made more than 70 appearances for Nigeria since his debut in 2002.

Enyeama is expected to continue in goal for Nigeria when they face Mali in the semifinals.
