Two Eagles In Africa’s Best XI


The Nigerian duo of Vincent Enyeama and Ahmed Musa made the CAF finest 11 team as revealed by Caf at the 2014 Glo-Caf awards on Thursday in Lagos, Nigeria.

Despite losing out to Yaya Toure in the African Footballer of the Year category, Enyeama was picked as the first choice and top goalkeeper in Africa for 2014.

The OSC Lille goalkeeper has been in tremendous form for his Ligue 1 side with the highest clean sheet rate this past calendar year as well as leading Nigeria to a second round finish at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Ahmed Musa has had a stellar 2014 with brilliant performances for Nigeria and his club CSKA Moscow in the Russian Premier League and the Champions League.

The diminutive former VVV Venlo star also scored twice at the 2014 World Cup held in Brazil to further cement his place in the line-up.

Goalkeeper: Vincent Enyeama (Nigeria)

Defenders: Jean Kasulula (DR Congo) Medhi Benatia (Morocco), Stephane Mbia (Cameroun) Kwadwo Asamoah (Ghana)
