According to our Sports reporter in Nigeria, the Nigerian FA doesn’t entirely believe that the winger was injured – and are set to launch an investigation in to the matter.

Moses has been in fine form for the Blues, coming to the fore under new manager Antonio Conte.

FIFA regulation on feigning injury in international breaks

A player who has been called up by his association for one of its representative teams is, unless otherwise agreed by the relevant association, not entitled to play for the club… during the period for which he has been released or should have been released.

This restriction on playing for the club shall, moreover, be prolonged by five days in the event that the player, for whatsoever reason, did not wish to or was unable to comply with the call-up.

  1. Moses face club duty but best thing to do is to quit international football so you won't be called again.

  2. Moses ain't very happy with Nigeria as a country: he lost both parents to Kaduna riots many years ago before he ws taken to London as a teenager by an uncle. He really doesn't call here home.

    When we won Nation's Cup and a dinner ws held in honour of the players by Goodluck, he shunned it. He didn't even return to naija with his teammates cos everybody was being received by "family" members
