Injured Moses joins Super Eagles camp

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has joined his Nigeria international team-mates in London but looks unlikely to feature in his country’s upcoming friendlies.

Moses was injured last Monday night in Chelsea's 1-0 FA Cup win over Manchester United and was forced to leave the field in the 89th minute.

But he then played 70 minutes of the Blues' 2-1 victory over Stoke on Sunday before being substituted.

It then emerged that the London club had informed the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that the player was not fit to play for his country in friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso, both of which are scheduled to take place in England's capital city.

"Chelsea have confirmed Victor Moses' injury but he has not fully pulled out of the Super Eagles squad yet," an NFF insider confirmed earlier this week.

According to a later report, Moses has joined other Premiership players such as Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi at the Super Eagles' base in a London hotel, but is not expected to be asked to play in either of the friendly matches.

To date, 17 players have reportedly arrived for the camp: Carl Ikeme, Shehu Abdullahi, Isaac Success, Ogenyi Onazi, Noah Bazee, Wilfred Ndidi, Moses Simon, Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa, Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Tyrone Ebuehi, John Ogu, Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem and Alex Iwobi.
