Nigeria: Moses Resumes Training After Injury Scare

Super Eagles and Chelsea winger Victor Moses has resumed training with Nigeria after he suffered a knock in a warm-up game against Sparta Rotterdam.

As a result of the injury, Moses missed the Eagles final AFCON warm-up game against Portuguese club Farense.

Moses is widely seen as the Eagles top star and will make his AFCON debut in South Africa.

He has restated his resolve for Nigeria to win a third Nations Cup title in South Africa.

"Leaving today for South Africa for AFCON with the squad hope to come home with the trophy," Moses tweeted before the team's departure on Wednesday night.

Moses has shone for the Eagles after a tentative start to his Eagles career in Rwanda in February. He has scored two goals against Liberia in a final 2013 AFCON qualifying match in October.
