Football | Nigeria

Moses continues to impress



The top leagues of Europe are slowly stirring after a brief period of hibernation and as always, Nigerians are getting into the groove.

Victor Moses was the only goal-scorer of note as he helped Chelsea to a 5-1 victory over Southampton in the FA Cup third round.

Obafemi Martins was surprisingly left out of the Levante side that thrashed Athletic Bilbao 3-1 at the Ciudad de Valencia while Odion Ighalo continued his steady progress at Granada.

In another weekend that saw big guns, John Mikel Obi and Peter Odemwingie miss out on the action for their respective clubs, supersport.com runs the rule on how Nigerians performed at the weekend.
