Moses off to the Eagle's Nest in Faro
Striker Victor Moses has played his last game for reigning European club champions, Chelsea as he joins up with the Nigerian squad in Faro, Portugal for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
Moses scored Chelsea’s second goal as the Blues put Southampton to the sword 5-1 in a third round game in the English FA Cup on Saturday.
The former Wigan Athletic man has been in a rich vein of form and Saturday’s effort in first half stoppage time was one of sheer quality; a shot of astonishing power considering the complete lack of back lift.
The 21-year-old has joined the Nigerian squad in Faro, Portugal as the last set of arrivals in the Super Eagles’ nest.
Doubts remain over the state of Moses’ Chelsea teammate, John Obi Mikel, who is still out injured.
The former FC Lyn-Oslo man was not even amongst the Chelsea substitutes in the romp at Southampton.
Mikel was ruled out of the Nigerian squad for the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa because of a knee injury.
