    Most Nigerians are reflection of Nigeria, my friend did u know they canceled history in Nigeria schools?Some people have questioned Moses patriotism some even doubt his skills, this’s a guy that lost his parents to those barbarians from the North. Moses is a player I will continue to respect and cherish.

     
  • Sunny b moses did not lost any of his parents infact his parent lives in new benin edo state. That story is an asylum story nigerians usualy tell to get european stay when they enters without offical invitation. Moses is a benin boy he played for Big j foundation those days. He is very tilented player. But shakara too much. In this life if u fiĺl too relunctant about doing something u can never be consistent on that thing moses is a on and off player. U cant count on him all the time he chooses wen he comes at the end no level for two world cups if u dont have big love for eagles u cannever score a world cup goal ecept they give u free penalty to score. He should keep his skills to him self we can cope. Jah bless naija.

      Colins id. May you walk and never stumble. It beats my imagination that some sectional Nigerians are still racist and tribalistic in this day and age. Yet we’re always the ones to cry foul when an oyinbo man is discriminatory against us. Our problem lies between us and it’s a pity that we just have to coexist this way. Moses never lost his parents, he played at BJ foundation with Elderson Echiejile in those days.

      His real name is Victor Egharevba confirm Benin boy. His dad according to sources plays for the old Bendel insurance. He only used that story of the unrest in the North to seek asylum in England because he was so young. 

      I love Moses since he broke into the SuperEagles, but in all honesty Moses never gave Nigeria 100%. His body language is always a suspect whenever he plays for the SuperEagles. Doesn’t want to sing the national item. Our Splash brothers Ekong and Balogun despite having white mothers, born and raised abroad always sing the Anthem with gusto and panache. 

      Moses could’ve been in the same class as Mane or Zaha, but his on and off attitude is always the issue. Nigeria and the SuperEagles have since moved with a plethora of qualities. Rohr has built his team around these young guns that are ready to spill their blood for the SuperEagles.

        Just to add….a certain Chamberlain Egharevba (who is said to be Moses’s brother) also played for the U17s in 2003. Moses’ immediate family are still very intact, none has ever been killed. The story of his parents being killed in the north is one of the greatest lies ever told in Nigeria after the India vs Nigeria 99-0 fable. Lolz

      Unbelievable stuff! The things Nigerians do to obtain asylum in so called greener pastures! Which kain life be dis? So Moses has been living a lie all this time? For what na? I knew his real name is Victor Egharevba, but I had also previously believed he lost his parents in the Northern religious riots. Thanks Collins, for this eye opening information. I love Victor Moses as a player, but I pity him that he has to live this lie for the rest of his life!

    If Moses said bluntly that he will never play for his fatherland again, what can anyone do about it. If anybody wants to hang around him after that, go ahead, it is your choice.

    Thank God that others has come up to take his place. Nigeria qualified with a match to spare during the qualifying period all without him.

    Forget about Moses, move on . Don’t be a sucker.

     
  • For the fact that I love Moses a lot, we just have to move on.
    After he announced his retirement,
    *Iwobi started performing for Arsenal
    * Chukwueze arises
    * So was Samuel Kalu.
    * Onyekuru plays and won the same League Moses was loan to.
    * David okereke becomes hot cake in England and so on.
    Even the NFF president tried to bring home back..yet he wished to give the younger once the opportunity so thank you very much Moses… they’ve grabbed it with both hands.

      You spoke a lot of sense. There appears to be some underlying bitterness among some fans because Victor Moses retired early and has stuck to that decision despite numerous attempts to convince him to come back.

      Now, they question his commitment when he played for Nigeria.
      They question his motivation for choosing Nigeria over England.
      They manufacture conspiracy theories about his circumstances prior to moving to England.
      They talk about what might have been and the Super star he would have gone to become.

      But ultimately, they are hurt about his retirement moreso about the determination to stick to his decision.

      If he were to change his mind, many would go to church to give glory to the Almighty and bring an end to all these ‘alternate conclusions’.

      Other dual nationalities will see this and will wonder whether to switch allegiance to Nigeria.

      Victor Moses asylum story is his sole prerogative. If he had anything to hide, he would not have played for England across several age levels before switching allegiance to an ungrateful Nigeria. In England, the media will investigate everything about every player because they have some of the most ruthless investigative journalists in the world.

      Many super stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Dimiter Berbatov retired early from international football and their fans learned to move on from it.

      I urge Nigerian fans to do the same particularly as we have able replacements like Kalu. In the case of Zlatan and Berbatov, those countries did not have able replacements, yet their fans moved on…..

       
  • I used to wonder why Moses was all hide and seek and refused to be totally committed to Nigeria.

    That was until Segun Odegbami provided another angle in a recent article. Whenever he came down for the few games he chose to play for the SE, Moses talked very little, avoided the cameras and press interviews. After the game, he would jet out almost immediately and hardly spend a couple of days to say hi to friends and family.

    I suppose as clearly Nigeria’s star player and SE poster boy, his big asylum lie began to catch up when his huge talents matured and was naturally attracting global sporting spotlight.

    In fact, Odegbami said he and some foreign media partners had to cancel a planned TV documentary on Moses at the last minute when his asylum story couldn’t be verified. Moses general attitude may be in trying to avoid media scandals in the event big guns like SkySports, BBC and CNN pick up on the true story.

    A pity such a collosal talent had to be retired from internationally football prematurely. With a more patriotic mindset, he could have retired as one of Nigeria’s greatest – in the mould of Odegbami, JayJay, Yekini and Kanu.

    But somehow, the huge potentials of players like Kalu and Chukwueze remind me of Moses. Hopefully, these ones fully fulfill their potentials.

      Always pleasing to read quality statements like this. Moses is a huge talent that has only given out about 30%. Sure that asylum thing hasnt done his potentials any good. We should all try understand with him.

      Thanks @Kel. These guys have lives outside football. For those ones that are not playing regularly, it’s easy for us to say move to Germany, Spain, Holland etc. The fact is they’d rather stay in the UK till they get that passport that’ll allow them move around. Onazi’s situation is a good case study – couldn’t get work permit despite playing for Nigeria.

      Didn’t know about Moses’ situation. His is a bit extreme though. It’s all part of survival.

       
  • Kai @ Kel,you hit something der.I never knew dis,ur note reveals a lot. I have been wondering why he chose Fenerbache for loan,wen his talent cud av got him bigger clubs.It may be to go into some kind of hiding bcos of d same lie.

    I begin to think dat Chelsea was a real shelter for him&dats why he clearly ddnt want to play d wingback role he was forced to play at d WCup.He wanted to showcase his attacking qualities to Sarri,d new coach,who everyone knew wud ditch d wingback system. Hazard was threatening to leave Chelsea,so it was a gud time for Moses to sell himself,at least as a deputy, if Hazard stays.
    Ofcourse,his wish was nt granted at d WCup&dat in no small way affected his Chelsea career.

    Now people who question his commitment can now take their words back. A lot of us seem to forget dat these players are human beings,they have a life outside futbal. Luk at wat d youngan was batting with . His talent began to a “problem” bcos it brot attention,attention dat was threatening to expose dat lie. O yes many oda futballes have lied lyk dis,but got away with it bcos dey are less talented or sumtin,but Moses’ prodigious talent made it difficult not to recognize him.

    Who knows the pressure he was going tru as his stardom made people& media houses to start investigating his asylum story. So u watch him in d SEagles and his body language,makes u think he’s not committed, whereas dats not correct.
    Infact if it’s some players dey won’t even think of playing for Nigeria,just so dat d asylum story won’t be investigated or something. They wud just keep a low profile abroad till dey hang their boots. No one shud blame him for lack of commitment again please. He fought well,he played
    with the fullest commitment he cud muster.
    “But lie na bad thing sha,if e wan do u strong thing,u go be lyk small pikin wen dey catch red-handed dey thief meat from pot.” This story of Moses is quite painful bcos he’s an amazing talent til today; d suffering in d land makes people to do desperate things for a beta life. Even you reading der might be a lie in ur success somewhere,maybe an old 4gotten lie even.

    Avoid lies pls,whether it is exposed or not,der can be no reason to lie before God.God’s grace is sufficient.
    I wish us well

    moses has never wanted to play for Nigeria simple…. 0% commitment… it shows in his body language from the on set.

     
    • No one put a gun to his head ab initio forcing him to play for Naija.
      Anyway,u have a right to air ur opinion.
      As we say in Warri,Do.

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 2 months ago

        Do. It was Siasia who put a lot of pressure on him to come play for Nigeria at the time, when the then SuperEagles gaffer spotted him in England. Yobo also persuaded him to come play for Nigeria. At the time he was expecting a call from Capello the then England coach. He said it in an interview himself that Capello snub and the pressure from the Nigeria coach made him decide to come play for Nigeria. Therefore, OSARE! he was reluctant from the unset. We thank him for his service. 

         
  • Thanks for the added [email protected] Ayphilly..,at a least you said persuaded not FORCED.Some others have also been persuaded but refused and continued to refuse even after their preferred choice country doesn’t call them up.
    Like I said,I refuse to agree with d idea dat questions dis guys commitment at any time, especially looking at d context of this thread of discourse. My words above,”..he played with the fullest commitment he could muster.”

    If u think or know otherwise,please know your “know” lemme know my “know”.
    Do

     
    • Ashy Slashy 2 months ago

      You are spot on Oge.
      Ayphilly knows I am his number one fan but I get disappointed with the negativity that has come from Moses’ early retirement.
      I know he picked matches he played in (to manage injuries and all that) and I know he wasn’t always on fire for the Super Eagles.
      But to suggest that Victor Moses wasn’t committed when winning and scoring penalties for Nigeria is just ludicrous!
      He played with his heart in his sleeves and bailed us out several times.
      Like you said, Nedum Onouha, John Fashanu, John Salako and Sidney Sam to mention a few were called but turned down the chance to play for Nigeria.
      Victor Moses heeded the call and retired when he felt the time was right – finish.

       
    • Ayphillydegreat 2 months ago

      Oge. No one question his commitment to the course and of course he played his part for the SuperEagles and may continue to do so if he so wishes. My point still remains that he never gave Nigeria 100% that’s all I need you guys to comprehend and that one na my own know. Whichever way you calculate it that one na your own know Do. 

       
  • Moses dad played for bendel insurance. Surname egharevba. We will miss him in the team, glad we have boys who can replicate
