Lille goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, is in line to retain the Marc-Vivien Foe Award for the best African player in the French Ligue 1.
The Super Eagles captain won last year’s edition and has been nominated once more for the upcoming award.
The prize was initiated in 2009 in honour of Foe, who collapsed and died on June 26, 2003 during Cameroon’s FIFA Confederations Cup semi-final clash with Colombia.
Enyeama will face competition from the Ayew brothers – Jordan and Andre – of Ghana, Max Gradel of Cote d’Ivoire, Aymen Abdennour of Algeria and Clinton N’Jie of league leaders Lyon.
Previous winners are Marouane Chamakh (2009), Gervinho (2010, 2011), Younes Belhanda (2012), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2013) and Enyeama (2014).
