According to reports from some media platforms, NFF Chief Amaju Pinnick has been quoted to suggest that Nigeria hasn't given up on Victor Moses to make a u-turn on his decision to quit international football.
In fact, the report suggests that the NFF continues to be in constant communication with Victor Moses with a view to either luring him back to the national team or giving him a proper retirement testimonial match.
The NFF boss was quoted saying in a television programme that: " I am talking with Victor Moses because I believe he is somebody who has paid his dues and you don’t just leave Nigeria unceremoniously.
I talk to him everyday and I made him understand the reason why.
He is very eager, very very eager but he still wants to talk to me.
It’s not as if there are no players but you see we should encourage our players.
I recall the Nations Cup we won, he scored two penalties in the game against Ethiopia with ten minutes to go and that catapulted us for the quarter-final. So you just don’t say he want to go, let him go.
I will be meeting with him and his agent in a fortnight and even if he (still) wants to go, there must be a ceremony for him; look at what England did to Wayne Rooney, they brought him back. We must celebrate them all the time and that’s the truth." End of quote.
The Chelsea winger, who made 37 appearances and scored 17 goals for Nigeria, announced his retirement from international football on 15 August 2018 much to the sadness of many Super Eagles fans at home and abroad.
