Nigeria/Zambia: Victor Moses to Feature Against Zambia

Super Eagles star Victor Moses who has not featured for Nigeria in a Nations Cup will make his debut on Friday against defending champions Zambia. This is coming as Stephen Keshi has promised to make changes in the team. He said he is not only introducing new players but will also change approach as they seach for a win against the Zambians tomorrow.

He knows the feelings and reactions of Nigeria after his team's unconvincing 1-1 draw with Burkina Faso in a match that was heading their way seconds to the last whistle. Keshi still burdened by the weight of expectations, promised to turn things around against Zambia with the introduction of the Chelsea man, Victor Moses.

"Lets see how he gets before Friday. He had harmstring before we left Faro but has been responding positively in training", the former Togo and Mali coach said.

Meanwhile, captain of the team, Joseph Yobo trained alone meaning he is not fully fit and a doubt against Zambia. But Moses sparkled with his dribble runs and looks set to breathe fresh air to the attack and get goals to sink Zambia.
