Victor Moses says he is determined to continue to represent Nigeria and is happy to have put a disrupted international career behind him.
The Chelsea star was in the Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations-winning squad in 2013 but has not featured much for his country since then.
"I'm really happy to be back with Nigeria again after a stop-start international career," Moses told BBC Sport.
"I've been injured lots of times and that spell gave the fans the wrong impression about my commitment.
"It was frustrating but I'm over that, played the last three competitive games and getting better. When you are playing you enjoy yourself."
After spending the last three years on loan, the 25-year old is back at Chelsea and has impressed under new manager, Antonio Conte, scoring two goals in four appearances.
The former Wigan player believes his form will be beneficial to Nigeria as they begin their quest for a place in Russia 2018 against Zambia next month.
"I want to play every single game for my country and I need to keep doing well at Chelsea to enjoy that," he said.
"We've failed to reach the next Nations Cup but we have a new manager and things must take a great path for us to reach the World Cup.
"The three countries in our group (Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia) are desperate to be in Russia.
"I played the last one in Brazil with an injury but I want to play in the next one and it starts with that tough away game against Zambia."
Moses who represented England at youth level before switching allegiance to Nigeria has scored seven goals in 25 appearances for Nigeria.
