Nigeria: Moses Set for Eagles Return

Super Eagles winger, Victor Moses, is poised to return to the Nigeria national team set up after missing important matches of the Super Eagles in recent months.

This follows successful talks held between the player and coach of Nigeria’s senior national team, Sunday Oliseh.

Oliseh revealed on Monday night that he had held a “very constructive meeting” with Moses in London.

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Melvin Pinnick was also in London for the meeting.

Oliseh subsequently took to Twitter to post a photo he took with Moses and his Belgian assistant, Jean Francois Losciuto, explaining what transpired after Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 in the Community Shield.

“At Wembley to see Chelsea vs Arsenal. Hoping to see Super Eagles Moses & Mikel play with FA Boss Pinnick & Losciuto.

“Very constructive meeting with Chelsea & Super Eagles’ Victor Moses. The team building continues,” Oliseh wrote through his verified Twitter account @SundayOOliseh.

The former Juventus midfielder also met Moses’ Chelsea teammate, John Obi Mikel after the game and it is now widely believed that both players will be part of the “new team building process” of Oliseh.

Mikel has played 64 times for Nigeria at senior level while Moses, who won his first cap for Nigeria in 2012 has played for the Super Eagles 24 times.
