Fact or Rumor: Victor Moses Might Choose Nigeria Over England
By 2dramasports.com May 23, 2009
Victor Moses, who was born and raised in Nigeria, plays for Crystal Palace, an English second division club. Victor fled to England after a tragic accident that took the life of his parents.
While in England, young Victor found his true calling on the football field, scoring a remarkable 50 goals for Crystal Palace's Under 14 Youth Squad. Top coaches in the English Premier League were rumored to have set their sights on Moses, but he committed to Crystal Palace until 2012. Victor Moses' talent was also seen by English football fans as the young man netted a whopping ten goals for England National youth teams.
Following in Victor Anichebe's footstep, Victor Moses was rumored to answer the call of duty for Nigeria's nation football team. Until this story is made official by press conference or Moses interview to the press, one can only wonder if this dream can come true for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Victor Moses can play various positions for the Super Eagles such as striker, winger, and attacking midfielder. Nigeria needs massive help in midfield, currently no creative midfielder that can supply the strikers with a steady flow of passes.
The days of Jay-Jay Okocha, where Nigeria had a midfield general that could change the tempo of the game, supply strikers and team-mates with steady passes are gone. The current Super Eagles midfield selection is really nothing to write home about. For the most, strikers are left to create chances on their own. The midfield is where most games are won.
Nigeria midfield is missing a few good players, perhaps Moses could be the cure to Nigeria's midfield crisis.
