Oct 20, 2015 – Emmanuel Emenike Leaves The Super Eagles Days After Vincent Enyeama’s Exit

Emenike who was top scorer at the 2014 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa joined the Super Eagles in 2011 and had his debut in a friendly against Sierra Leone.

Disclosing his decision to quit on Instagram, he said:

“No more Eagles career! After five great years, I am happy to announce that I have put full-stop to my national team career for the sake of national peace.”
“It’s a pleasure for me to have played for this great country. I never regretted it and I think it’s the best time to end it. Million thanks to all the fans who have been very supportive during the good and bad times.

“I am very proud of my performance, I am proud of my team mates and I am very proud of the nation called ‘Nigeria’. My Afcon gold medal is a sign of great achievement, My AFCON topscorer award speaks a lot about my commitment and dedication to the team. Super Eagles is a camp not a family house, and it shouldn’t be a threat zone for any individual.

“I have done according to our national anthem. All my dreams came true in the national team, I dreamt (sic) to win Nations Cup for Nigeria after 20-years, I dreamt (sic) to played at the World Cup as well as to make a name for myself… In the space of five years, I got them. I’m a winner!

“For every disappointing fans, maybe due to my inability to re-establish my goal scoring instinct for Super Eagles, I will like to say I’m sorry but the ones I had scored counted well for the team.

“As long as Nigeria remains, you and I will always remember the name ‘Emenike’. “Finally, I am happy to take a bow and continue supporting the team every time,” he concluded.

  6. @Emmanuel Emenike, you disappointed me. How can you resign from the national Team on the pages of “Istagram” when you were called to National Team, were you Invited on the pages of FaceBook or Instagram?

    Things should be done the Proper way. I dont care if you resign, but do it properly with some respect for the leadership of @NFF, @NationalTeam, @CoachOliseh.
