Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has been given permission to leave French club Lille for his mother’s burial.
Enyeame pulled out of the country’s AFCON 2017 qualifier against Tanzania following his loss and will now miss his club’s next two games.
Lille play host to Nantes on Tuesday and will also welcome Montpellier on Friday night.
Enyeama missed the club’s last game against Riems due to suspension after being sent off in the game against Rennes.
After announcing last Thursday that Enyeama would be back between the posts against Nantes, Lille coach Herve Renard admitted Monday they had to let Enyeama fly out to Nigeria because of mounting family pressure.
“There was some changes this weekend, from what was previously planned. The pressure from the family was very high. And then, it will be the international break,” Renard told L’Equipe.
