“I am really happy for the victory against Angola and I feel very happy because the win is for Nigerians.

    Quality written all over you!

    • Simon has always been quality. He does have off days like any other player but he remained a great player. I pray God to reward this great servant of our football with the converted cup come 11th of February.

  • Moses Simon should move to Man U; i DON’T know what he’s still doing in Nantes….at least, one last dance in mainstream Europe before he finally retires; just like Ighalo…….smh!
