Afcon 2013: Iinjury stops Moses

COAT OF MANY COLOURS: Victor Moses, (L) in England colours, (R) in Nigeria coloursWhen the Super Eagles step out against Ethiopia’s Antelopes tomorrow in a crunch tie that determines the fate of the Nigerians, Chelsea’s Victor Moses would be missing in action.

Coach Stephen Keshi announced yesterday that Moses had aggravated the injury that stopped him from playing in the opening tie against Burkina Faso and remains a suspect for the all-important match tomorrow.

“There are no injury worries in the team except for Moses. He aggravated the injury he sustained in Faro that stopped him from playing in the opening match. All other players are fit and ready”, Keshi announced at the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport on their way to Rustenburg.

While the Eagles are ruing the absence of Moses, skipper Joseph Yobo is set to bounce back after he missed the match against Zambia due to a minor injury.

Yobo confirmed yesterday that he was fit and may likely be on duty to guard the Eagles against the fast-running Ethiopians.

“Yes, I am better now. I trained all through and may  play if the coach gives me the green light”, he said.
