Moses gets to the promised land



Chelsea attacking winger, Victor Moses, is now set to make his first appearance for Nigeria at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Moses, 22, sat out Nigeria's 1-1 draw with Burkina Faso on Monday but looks primed to face African champions, Zambia at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit this Friday.

The Chelsea man has recovered from an injury to boost Stephen Keshi's attacking options for Friday's crucial game.

"Victor trained well yesterday (on Wednesday) and, hopefully, he will be okay to play from the start. We hope he will bring a lot of desire to the side," said the Nigerian manager, Keshi.

Moses had earlier declared himself fit to make his Afcon debut for Nigeria's Super Eagles.

And the former Crystal Palace man is not just thinking of an Afcon debut but also a win against Zambia and winning the title for his three months old son, Brentley Moses.

“I have been in touch with the mother and my little boy and I feel I should do him a world of good by picking three points from Zambia and eventually winning a trophy from Africa for my little boy,” he declared.

Moses has made seven appearances for Nigeria since his international debut against Rwanda in Kigali in an Afcon qualifying on February 29, 2012.
