Author: No Comments Share:

Wigan Athletic’s exciting star midfielder, Victor Moses, has finally received official clearance to play for Nigeria.  Speaking today following the decision a FIFA spokesperson confirmed,


“After having thoroughly examined the entire documentation remitted by the Nigerian Football Federation, the Single Judge concluded that the player Victor Moses fulfils the objective prerequisites as provided for in art. 18 par. 1 of the Regulations. In particular, the player has never represented the Football Association representative team at “A” international level.

“Furthermore, the Single Judge also took due note of the fact that, based on the document dated 7 July 2011, issued by the “National population commission” in Garki-Abuja, Nigeria, the player in question already held the Nigerian nationality before representing England for the first time in an international match in a U-17 official competition on 23 March 2007 as he is an Nigerian citizen by birth.”

All at TNS wish Victor all the best in what promises to be an exciting international future.
