Super Eagles stars, Victor Moses and Kenneth Omeruo will resume pre-season programme with their English Premier League side, Chelsea, on the 16th of July at the club’s Surrey headquarters before they leave for a training camp in Australia, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Moses played in all three games for the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia while Omeruo starred in the team’s last two games.
Nigeria failed to get past the group stages losing 2-0 to Croatia, winning 2-0 against Iceland and losing 2-1 to Argentina in Group D.
Nigeria’s only three goals at the World Cup in Russia were scored by Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses. Musa netted a brace in the 2-0 win over Iceland, while Moses scored the consolatory goal when the Eagles lost 2-1 to Argentina.
While Omeruo is yet to feature for Chelsea in an official game, Moses who had spent three seasons away from Stamford Bridge on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham played 38 times in all competitions over the course of the 2017/18 campaign, and ended the season winning the English FA Cup for the first time.
Moses netted three times in 2017/18 season against Brighton, West Brom and Burnley, playing at right wing-back.
Meanwhile another Nigeria international who was left out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Ola Aina, and other Chelsea non-World Cup players are expected to resume pre-season at the club this weekend.
These players will have medical and fitness tests at Cobham. Chelsea’s first pre-season fixture is against Perth Glory in Australia on July 23.
