Eguavoen Courting Victor Moses For Eagles Return

Super Eagles technical adviser Augustine Eguavoen has expressed his desire to see former Nigeria International Victor Moses to return to the Super Eagles set up.

Thirty-one-year-old Moses brought to an end his international career with the Nigeria national team after the Super Eagles crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia at the group stage.

Since he hung his boot on the international stage, there have been several efforts by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to make him change his decision and rejoin the Super Eagles but he has turned down all the approaches and instead opting against playing for the three-time African Cup of Nations champions.

“Even Victor Moses. I will break the news. We want the best for the country. Victor Moses is someone I also adore and I’ve been looking for ways to get him into the team,” Eguavoen told journalists on Monday.

“We have spoken, but he’s not part of this game but hopefully as time goes on because we want the best.

“Whether we like it or not, I think Victor Moses will bring some value. But right now he’s playing in that region (Russia), so that one is settled.”

A 2013 AFCON winner and former Chelsea player, Moses chose to represent Nigeria ahead of England after playing for than at the Under 16-21 levels.

Late Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi invited Moses as part of Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, where he scored two penalties in their final group stage game against Ethiopia.

He scored 12 times for the Super Eagles across 37 appearances. He currently plays as a winger for Russian side Spartak Moscow.
