FA Cup Finalist Moses Could Be Exempted From Super Eagles Uyo Camp

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:
Chelsea star Victor Moses may get exemption from the opening week of the Super Eagles World Cup camp to recover after his team’s FA Cup final game with Manchester United on May 19 at Wembley Stadium in London, Completesportsnigeria.com reports..
Although, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is insisting that all invited players must report in Uyo by May 22 to open the camp, there are indications that Moses will be excused after having a hectic season which will culminate in Chelsea playing up till May 19.
“Every player invited safe for two or three players, most likely to include Victor Moses, must report to camp on May 22,” a Super Eagles source told CSN.
 “Rohr is serious about beginning the World Cup preparation on a good note and he has personally spoken with all the players on the importance of arriving early.”
The Super Eagles are scheduled to camp in Uyo for a few days before heading to Port Harcourt to face DR Congo in a friendly on May 28.
The team will then proceed to London where they will face England in another friendly on June 2 at Wembley.
The Super Eagles’ final friendly will be on June 6 against Czech Republic in Austria, where they will camp for 10 days before leaving for Russia on June 12.
Nigeria will play Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in Group D at the World Cup.

    They should invite Samuel Kalu of kAA gent. I think he can really deputise in the absence Victor moses owing to rest.
    I wish the super eagles best of luck in the world cup proper,Ameen.

    Bomboy and Co! The FIFA deadline for submission of the “Provisional List” of 35 is 15th May. So , whether the NFF releases it or not to the local media, we can go to the FIFA website, fifa.com in 4 days time and see what Nigeria has submitted.

    Mediocre players like Babatunde Michael, Uche Uchebo, Reuben Gabriel, Ejike Uzoenyi and azeez etc, Gatecrash Nigeria last WORLD cup team based on their bribe while d likes of joel obi and ik uche and ideye were discharged. Today nko where are those mediocre players? NFF and our local Nigeria coaches will b deceiving themselves with a never ending explanation after intended failures over over again. We are waiting on Rohr list let us observe it well… NFF runs men must be running one or two things by now but we will see!.
