GK) Vincent Enyeama (Nigeria)
Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama will be key to his side’s hopes of emerging from a tricky looking Group F ahead of Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iran, with the 31 year-old coming off the back of an incredible season for Lille in Ligue 1.
Enyeama was vital as Lille qualified for the Champions League in third place, as the former Hapoel Tel Aviv man kept the most clean sheets in the French top flight.
