Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has been recognised by UEFA as one of the four goalkeepers to have scored a goal in the history of the Champions League.

According to a post on UEFA’s official website, Ivan Provedel, Sinan Bolat and Hans-Jorg Butt are the other goalkeepers who achieved the feat.

Enyeama joined the exclusive list when he converted from the spot in Israeli club, Hapoel Tel Aviv’s 3-1 defeat to Olympic Lyon of France on September 9, 2010.

Bolat and Provedel, like Enyeama, scored one goal each from the spot.
