Victor Moses: 'I Don’t Dodge Super Eagles Games'
Super Eagles forward Victor Moses has denied insinuations in some quarters that he select which game to play when it comes to national assignment.
Moses made it clear he does not stay away from the Eagles deliberately.
In 2017, Moses played his first game for the Super Eagles on September 1 in Uyo after missing international matches against Senegal in March and South Africa in June.
“Yes, everyone says that I select games. I have heard it myself,” he told SCORENigeria
“But it is what it is. I never run away from challenges. I love to play football, why would I run away from playing football? That is what we are meant to do. But people keep saying that I choose games for Nigeria… But I need to clear the air now, that is not true.
“If I have got Injury, I have got Injury. Whenever I want to play for Nigeria, I must be 100%, I want to give everything. But if I have got an injury, I don’t want to force myself because I am going to look stupid on the pitch.”
Moses scored one of the goals when Nigeria defeated Cameroon 4-0 in Uyo on September 1 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier. He was also outstanding in the return leg played in Yaounde three days later, which ended 1-1.
He made CAF’s Best 11 for both games and he was by far Nigeria's best all-round player.
