Eagles were beaten 0-2 by the Central African foes in Thursday’s high profile friendly match in Vise, Liege in Belgium.
The Lille of France shot stopper however enthused that the three-time African champions will come back to winning way in not too distant time.
“Naturally I feel bad as a Nigerian that Super Eagles loss 0-2 to the Leopards of DR Congo in Belgium.
“However, I strongly believe that Nigeria will get up shortly to start winning matches.
“I don’t want to say that the side loss because I did not feature in the match, the outcome may not have been anything different if I had played the match,” said Enyeama.
However, Enyeama who shocked the entire football community with his sudden retirement from national assignment said he will be too willingly to pick up his gloves if it’s professionally allowed.
“I retired from international duty in order for Nigerian football to move forward. I never planned to retire the manner and time I did but things happened too differently and suddenly.
“I must confess that I did what I did for the development and growth of the game in Nigeria.
“However, I will do everything professionally to make Nigeria succeed, if to stay out of the national team permanently is what will make Nigeria professionally to succeed then I won’t consider a comeback,” said Enyeama.
Eagles will on Sunday confront the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in another international friendly match at the Edmond Machtens Stadium in Brussels.
