Super Eagles striker, Victor Moses, has announced his retirement from international football.
The chelsea winger made the announcement on his Instagram page on Wednesday.
He said, “I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish.”
Moses, who first played for England as a juniour, debuted for Nigeria in 2012 and went on to play for the Super Eagles 42 times, scoring 13 goals.
His last goal for Nigeria was at the 2018 World cup in Russia, when he stepped forward and converted a penalty against Argentina in the second group game.
At 28, he called it time when his experience was badly needed in a youthful Super Eagles team.
