Spartak Moscow winger, Victor Moses is set to return to the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of Qatar 2022, FIFA World Cup.
Moses, who currently plays his club football at Spartak Moscow, retired from the national team in 2018. He made his debut for the three times African champions in 2012, was part of Stephen Keshi’s side that won the 2013 African Cup of Nations, after missing out on the 2012 edition.
Eguavoen, in a recent interview with selected journalists ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Ghana, said he wants to bring the 31-year-old winger back to the national team because he adores the former Chelsea star, adding that the will bring some value to the Super Eagles.
“Even Victor Moses. I will break the news. We want the best for the country. Victor Moses is someone I also adore and I have been looking for ways to get him into the team,” Eguavoen said.
“We have spoken, but he’s not part of this game but hopefully, as time goes on because we want the best. Whether we like it or not, I think Victor Moses will bring some value. But right now, he’s playing in that region (Russia), so that one is settled.”
Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr was also in the process of recalling Moses from retirement, but talks between both parties broke down.
