VICTOR MOSES RELISHES RETURN TO SUPER EAGLES TEAM
Reborn Chelsea star. Victor Moses is prepared to play any role for the Super Eagles when they take on Algeria in Saturday’s 2018 World Cup in Uyo.
The 25-year-old has been impressive for Chelsea this season playing as a wing-back in Antonio Conte’s new 3-4-3 formation which has seen the Blues rack up five straight wins without conceding a goal in the English Premier League.
And Moses who has scored twice playing in that role for Chelsea this season told journalists in Uyo during a media conference on Thursday that he is more comfortable playing as a forward.
He however assures handlers of the team he will give his best to ensure they maintain their lead in the African qualifying Group B table with another win if they opt to play him in another position.
“I can’t say I’m not happy playing as a wing-back, I’m the type who gives his all to his team regardless of where I’m playing from,” Moses said when asked which position best suits him on the pitch.
“I’m a forward minded player but I don’t mind playing anywhere to help my team.”
“Club side and national team are not the same, I can’t say where the manager will play me but I’m ready to give my best in any role.”
With Moses back in the squad, the Super Eagles will be aiming for a ninth victory over Algeria when both countries battle at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Saturday.
YOUGETMOUTH.COM expects Moses will start in a 3man frontline most probably from the left. Moses has always been good at ghosting past markers..but its his finishing that lets him down most times, here’s hoping he will have his scoring boots on Saturday.
