Super Eagles striker, Victor Moses has spoken of the enthusiasm in the squad ahead of Monday’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations group match against the Stallions of Burkina Faso after the country’s senior national team rounded off their first training session in South Africa.

The Chelsea winger said he and his colleagues were battle ready to do the nation proud by starting their Afcon group clash with a win over their West African foes.

He admonished Nigerians to get behind the Eagles if they want the team to soar in South Africa.
