- Victor Moses dismisses suggestions he does not always want to play for Nigeria
- The winger says he only accepts to play when he knows he is fully fit and injury-free
- He played in the draw and victory in back-to-back matches over Cameroon this month
Super Eagles star, Victor Moses says he does not pick and choose games he plays for Nigeria rather saying he would only accept to play when he is fully fit.
The 26-year-old Chelsea winger has been accused of only playing for the Eagles during the World Cup Qualification notably missing AFCON Qualifiers.
“Yes, everyone says that I select games. I have heard it myself,” he said.
“But it is what it is. I never run away from challenges. I love to play football, why would I run away from playing football? That is what we are meant to do,” he said.
“But people keep saying that I choose games for Nigeria… But I need to clear the air now, that is not true.
“If I have got an injury, I have got an injury. Whenever I want to play for Nigeria, I must be 100 percent, I want to give everything. But if I have got an injury, I don’t want to force myself because I am going to look stupid on the pitch.”

Moses played a key role in the draw and victory in back-to-back matches over Cameroon this month that moved Nigeria closer to qualification for next year’s World Cup in Russia.
