Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama says he is more concerned with helping his French Ligue 1 club Lille Metropole seal a Champions League berth at the moment.
Lille are six points behind AS Monaco in third-place, which is the Champions League qualifying spot in France, with leaders Paris St-Germain already sixteen points clear at the top.
Enyeama, who would be hoping to stand in goal for Nigeria at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil, says club business is of the utmost urgency at the moment, adding it determines players’ faith on international stage.
“To many of us, we don’t want to discuss the World Cup at the moment, what we want is good placing for our club sides and then we can shift focus to the World Cup. If my club gets a Champions League spot for instance, it will help me focus properly for the World Cup and I know Nigeria will do well, trust me”, Enyeama said.
The goalkeeper also advised the Nigeria football community to concentrate its effort on the national team rather than heat up the system ahead of this summer showpiece.
“We read a lot about happenings in Nigeria, which most times are not palatable but we are the African Champions and we must let ourselves enjoy the moment while it lasts so that we can take a very determined spirit to the World Cup and I trust the NFF people will listen and help concentrate on better preparation for the World Cup. In essence we don’t want to hear any story of disagreement in the football family, please,” he remarked.
