Vincent Enyeama has not been named among the top 13 goalkeepers in the world for 2016 by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics.

The IFFHS world’s best goalkeeper is a football award given annually since 1987 with votes cast by IFFHS’s editorial staff as well as experts from different continents.

In April, the 33-year-old finished in sixth place among the top 10 goalkeepers in Europe for the 2015/16 season by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory.

Germany’s and Bayern München’s Manuel Neuer won his fourth successive IFFHS crown as The World’s Best Goalkeeper for 2016 with a convincing victory in this year’s poll.

Neuer, on 156 points, was a comfortable 65 points ahead of runner-up Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus) on 91, with Sporting Portugal and Portugal’s keeper Rui Patrizio collecting 50 to finish third.
