The national team goalkeeper would become only the second Nigerian to reach the century mark in 70 years since the organization was founded.

Former captain Joseph Yobo was the first player to reach the milestone in 2014 in a World Cup match against Argentina which the Eagles lost 3-2.

However, there was a silent celebration of Yobo’s feat perhaps as a result of that defeat.

According to the NFF, Enyeama will be celebrated at the Uyo Stadium in front of fans from his home state.

As part of the plans, the NFF announced a competition via Twitter where an autographed hand glove of the goalkeeper would be given out to a lucky fan.

“Nothing matches being recognized by your own country. I am very excited at the prospect of reaching 100 caps, and more so at the decision by the NFF to honour me on the day,” Enyeama told the federation’s website.
