Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is in consideration for penalty duties following John Mikel Obi's miss in the Africa Cup of Nations last game against Zambia.
Despite his unsuccessful attempt from the spot against Burkina Faso, Mikel remains the designated penalty-taker for the team, but a top team official said if he declines the responsibility, Enyeama may be required to step-up.

"We all know Vincent's ability at taking and scoring penalties,” said coach Stephen Keshi.
"For now, Mikel remains the first choice. But if he feels that he does not want to take it, Enyeama will do so."
Keshi refused to be drawn on the issue
"Let's get a penalty first, and then we'll see who takes it."
