Wigan’s Nigerian midfielder Victor Moses, who is expected to make his debut with The Super Eagles on Wednesday, expressed his happiness to play for Nigeria after choosing to represent the country of his birth.
“I’m happy to be here to play for Nigeria. I was born here and I’m happy to be home.” Moses was quoted as saying by KickOff on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old forward left Nigeria ten years ago and became one of the hottest promising talents in the Premier League.
Moses is an instrumental player in Wigan’s squad, having played 25 Premier League games this season.
Nigeria will meet Rwanda in Kigali in their opening 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
