Eagles Lose Victor Moses to Injury


Chelsea forward Victor Moses has been sidelined by injury and will therefore miss the Super Eagle’s Nations Cup fate-deciding tie against Ethiopia on Tuesday.

Coach Stephen Keshi announced yesterday that Moses had aggravated the injury that stopped him from playing in the opening tie against Burkina Faso and remains a suspect for the all-important match tomorrow.

“There are no injury worries in the team except for Moses. He aggravated the injury he sustained in Faro that stopped him from playing in the opening match. All other players are fit and ready”, Keshi announced at the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport on their way to Rustenburg.

Skipper Joseph Yobo will however be available for the Ethiopia match after he missed the match against Zambia due to a minor injury.

Yobo confirmed yesterday that he was fit and will be available for selection for the match against Ethiopia.

“Yes, I am better now. I trained all through and may  play if the coach gives me the green light”, he said.
