Blame Surgery For Victor Moses's Nigeria Absence - Chris Green

Moses was left out of the all important AFCON qualifying encounter against South Africa billed for Uyo on June 10.

Nigeria Football Federation Executive Committee member Chris Green has explained that surgery is the reason for Victor Moses's surprise omission from Nigeria's squad to face South Africa in a 2019 African Nations Cup qualifier next month.

The attacker, who helped Chelsea win the English Premier League title this past season, has been left out of Gernot Rohr's squad as he requires treatment on his toe.
"He has been carrying a toe injury for a while and has surgery scheduled for it," Green told ESPN.

"The coach has known about it for a while and so have we.

"We decided it was best to let him have his surgery now so he can be ready for the new season."
Also, one of the team's official told Own Goal that Moses’ exclusion was the decision of the coach, plus the fact that the player, who just wedded, is also set to undergo surgery.
“Rohr has picked those he believes will get the job done given the time spent together in Corsica and Paris. Some other players will step up to the challenge and the Super Eagles will be better for it.

“Aside that, Victor Moses is out owing to medical reasons. He will be having surgery on his toe in the coming weeks,” the official said.
