Nigeria forward, Victor Moses on Wednesday announced his retirement from international football at the age of 27.
The Chelsea winger who had played 37 times for Nigeria, scoring 12 times since making his debut in 2012 said this is the right time for him to step away to be able to focus on club career and his young family.
Recall that Moses had previously represented England up to Under-21 level while coming through the ranks at Crystal Palace.
He said, “I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime.”
“However, I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on my club career and young family, as well as to allow the next generation the opportunity to step up and to flourish.
“Thank you for the memories and good luck to the team for the future.”
Moses in his six-year stint with the Super Eagles won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013, and represented the nation at two World Cups, in 2014 and 2018.
