Victor Moses: Chelsea, Nigeria Winger Quit International Football


Nigeria's and Chelsea winger Victor Moses has announced his retirement from international football at the age of 27.
Moses scored a penalty in Nigeria's 2-1 Group D defeat by Argentina at the 2018 World Cup
Moses makes his international debut for Nigeria in 2012, and he featured in two World Cups, most recently in Russia this summer where he scored from the spot against Argentina. Only a late goal in that game prevented progression to the knockout stages. Moses played 37 times for his country, scoring 12 times since making his debut.
He had previously represented England up to Under-21 level, while coming through the ranks at Crystal palace.
"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," he said.
"However, I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on my club career and young family, as well as to allow the next generation the opportunity to step up and to flourish.

The former Stoke City, Westham and Liverpool loanee thanked Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, the
coaching staff, Nigerians and indeed the NFF for the support and opportunity given to him while playing for the national team.
However, his Chelsea teammate, Eden Hazard has  wished him well in his future endeavours.
 


"Thank you for the memories and good luck to the team for the future."
Moses won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 2013, and represented the nation at two World Cups, in 2014 and 2018.
