By James Agberebi:
Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh was beaming on Monday night as Nigeria forward, Victor Moses, made an impressive debut for West Ham United in their 2-0 Premier League win against Newcastle.
Moses, who was selected from the start by Slaven Bilic, was one of the most outstanding players for the Hammers as he ran the Newcastle defence ragged.
He almost crowned a wonderful performance with a goal but his shot, after a brilliant run and dribble, came off the cross-bar before Dimitri Payet slotted the ball home to seal the win for the Hammers.
He was replaced by Andy Carroll in the 88th minute to resounding cheers from West Ham fans.
Oliseh, applauded Moses for his impressive display for West Ham.
Reacting to Moses’ performance, Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle: “West Ham’s second goal has Victor Moses written all over it. That’s an assist in my books. Congrats to Victor.”
