SUPER Eagles West Ham player, Victor Moses was rattled by media reports Monday over his injury that he called the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to assure that he was hale and hearty and ready to play his first match under coach Sunday Oliseh against the Pharaohs of Egypt.
The Chelsea player who is on loan to West Ham, has not kicked a ball for the Eagles since Oliseh took over the reins of the national team assured the NFF of his availability for the all important Nations Cup double header against Egypt in Kaduna on March 26.
NFF’s spokesman, Ademola Olajire confirmed yesterday that Moses called the football house to pledge his availability and loyalty to coach Oliseh.
“Victor Moses called yesterday about media reports that he was injured. He said he was ready to play for the Eagles and dismissed that he was injured”, Olajire said.

The Eagles are two points behind group leaders Egypt after two rounds of matches with only the group winners guaranteed automatic qualification to the tournament in Gabon.
