Victor Moses to miss Rio Olympics?

Victor Moses
There are reports that Super Eagles player Victor Moses may not be listed in Nigeria’s squad to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Moses failed to honour yet another invitation to the Super Eagles, and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has vowed to deal with Chelsea forward.
The West Ham loanee was alleged to have tactically withdrawn from the friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg, and the NFF officials have vowed to take “corrective measures” against the player.
The 25-year-old was pencilled down as one of the three over-aged players on Samson Siasia’s provisional list for the Olympics, but he could now be left out.
“It is as I said before, his withdrawal from those games (against Mali and Luxembourg) made us unhappy and it wasn’t the first time he was doing it,” a top official told
“And now his name is on the Olympic Games list, but I’m not sure he will make it because we need to take some corrective measures for these players to understand the importance of playing for Nigeria.”
