Cape Town - Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is considering his international future after bowing out of the World Cup against France on Monday night.

Enyeama enjoyed a superb World Cup campaign, but was at fault when France opened the scoring through Paul Pogba.

The Super Eagles’ last-16 exit from Brazil has already resulted in the resignation of head coach Stephen Keshi, while captain Joseph Yobo has decided to retire from international football.

Enyeama has been tipped to take over from Yobo, but according to the Lille goalkeeper, he may not turn out in Nigerian colours again.

"It is a big honour to wear the [captain’s] armband for the national team," Enyeama told SuperSport.

"But at some point you need to say, ‘okay I take some years off, maybe I take some months off, maybe I call it quits.

"I will sit down with my wife and decide what to do next. Maybe it was my last game," he added.
