Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama’s run of 11 successive clean-sheets came to an abrupt end after 1,062 minutes of not conceding a goal, due to an own goal by a Lille teammate in their 1-0 loss to Bordeaux on Sunday.

Bordeuax’s Landry N’Guemo shot had hit the post before Denmark international defender Simon Kjaer deflected it into his own goal, only for Enyeama to be picking up the ball out of his net for the first time since September 15, during a 2-0 loss to Nice.

The loss also brought to an end Lille’s recent winning run- which included 1-nill victories over Toulouse, Valenciennes and Marseille- leaving them four points behind Ligue One leaders Paris St-Germain.

It means the 31-year-old ex-Enyimba shot-stopper will no longer break Bordeaux goalkeeper Gaetan Huard’s overall French top flight record of 1,176 consecutive minutes without conceding a goal during the 1992/93 season- just 115 minutes short.

He nonetheless remains comfortable with his second all-time best feat, having taken the penultimate spot in last Tuesday’s win over Marseille and extending that on Sunday.

He has featured for Lille in all league games this season and has conceded just three times against Stade de Reims, Nice and Bordeaux.
