Chelsea and Super Eagles of Nigeria winger, Victor Moses has called it quit with International football with Nigeria.

The 27-year-old African Nations Cup winner, a few minutes ago broke the news on his social media page, thanking Nigerians and Nigerian Football Association for their support and opportunity to wear the Nigerian colours. He said:

“I would like to announce that after much thought I have made the decision to retire from playing international football.

I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime. Nothing will ever compete to what it felt like to represent Nigeria on behalf of our country.

However I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish. We are blessed as a nation to have so many exciting young players coming through and now is their time.

There are so many highlights that stand out for me over the years; from making my debut, to playing in two World Cups and being a part of the team to win the African Nations Cup for first time for our nation since 1994 being just a few of them.

I have already spoken to the manager by telephone and would like to say thank you to him and his staff, the NFF and all of my teammates for all of their support over the years.

Most importantly I would like to say thank you to the Nigerian people for believing in me and supporting me over the years. It’s meant the world to me and my family and I will always be a proud Nigerian supporting the team.
Thank you for the memories and good luck to the team for the future.”

Victor Moses made his debut for Nigeria in 2012, after representing England at all the youth levels, and was also won the African Nations cup, and represented Nigeria at the just concluded Russia 2018 world cup.
We will miss him for sure, but all we can say for now is a big congratulations to him. Thank you Victor Moses.
