Moses Ready To Make Sacrifices For Eagles

By Ikenga Chronicles November 11, 2016

Victor Moses says he is ready to make any sacrifice to ensure the Super Eagles emerge victorious against Algeria’s Desert Foxes in their Russia 2018 World Cup Group B qualifier in Uyo on Saturday. The Chelsea star said he will play any position he is asked to play by the Head Coach, Gernot Rohr.

Moses has nailed down a regular first-team role at Chelsea after the Blues’ Italian manager Antonio Conte made him an integral part of his plans, deploying the 25-year-old Nigerian winger in his 3-4-3 system as a wing-back.

The system has seen the 2012 UEFA Champions League champions picking up maximum points in five Premier League games on the spin.

Moses, who represented Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, said on Thursday he would play any role given him by Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr in the tricky Uyo clash.

“I can’t say I’m not happy playing as a wing-back, I’m the type who gives his all to his team regardless of where I’m playing from,” the South Africa 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner told reporters.

“I’m a forward minded player but I don’t mind playing anywhere to help my team.”

The former Wigan player added, “Clubside and national team are not the same. I can’t say where the manager will play me but I’m ready to give my best in any role.”

On his part, Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi predicted a tough game against Algeria.

“Any side playing against Nigeria these days tend to raise their game so we know the task ahead of us,” the Turkey- based player said.

“We don’t want to talk too much in the press but just focus on what we have to do.” He added,

“We don’t need to speak too much but we will try to concentrate on ourselves. We also want Nigerians to know that the game against Algeria on Saturday is not going to be easy.”
