Chelsea loanee Victor Moses has been left out of a 2018 World Cup eliminator against Swaziland after he skipped Nigeria’s recent friendlies in Belgium, officials have disclosed. Victor Moses has been flying at London club West Ham, but he did not impress coach Sunday Oliseh when he opted out of friendly matches against DR Congo and Cameroon as a precautionary measure against injury.
“Oliseh was far from happy with Victor Moses when he withdrew from the friendlies against DRC and Cameroon in Belgium and that was why he left him out of the squad,” said a top official who was with the Eagles in Belgium. The player cannot choose the games he will play for Nigeria.”
Victor Moses and his handlers have always tried to stay clear of friendly matches involving national team, preferring for the player to only be called up for competitive games.
The West Ham forward was outstanding when Nigeria won a third AFCON two years ago, but he has now not featured for the Eagles for several months.
