Chelsea FC of England forward Victor Moses has expressed displeasure over his absence from Super Eagles squad for the clash against the Tricolores of Mexico on Friday. Moses has been ruled out of the clash due to a recurring injury, which his club said requires close monitoring; hence has to be given time to recuperate.
Nigeria national team will take on Mexico in Houston, Texas, United States of America in preparation for upcoming World Cup qualifiers and Confederation Cup.
Moses, who recently opted out of the friendly and Super Eagles’ hectic June schedule, is however not pleased with the circumstances, after his club announced that he will only be fit until July 6.
The player took to social microblogging site Twitter to vent out his disappointment (@VictorMoses) saying:
“Devastated not to be able to represent my country this summer bt have to respect medical advice on injury. I’ll be supporting though Nigeria.”
Moses made his Super Eagles debut against Rwanda in a Nations Cup qualifier two years ago and was one of the most impressive players at the Africa Cup of Nation, South Africa 2013.
His return to England saw him clinch the European League with Chelsea in what has been a blissful year for the forward.
Meanwhile, the injury means he will need more time to recuperate, according to Chelsea team doctor’s advice.
