Moses was only shown a yellow card for the actions with experts arguing that he was lucky not to have been issues with the marching orders for the display of petulance.

'The big boss' was not impressed with the forward's antics and slammed him at the break in the Nigeria changing.

Spokesman of the Super Eagles, Ben Alaiya told supersport.com after the game that "Keshi was hopping mad at that action and gave Moses what could be likened to the famous Sir Alex Ferguson's hair dryer treatment for his (Moses') actions,"

Five Nigerian players, Efe Ambrose, Elderson Echiejile, Joseph Yobo, Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses were booked in the game.

Coach Stephen Keshi always told his team that; "discipline should be their top priority".
