A source at the NFF informed that the leadership of the football federation is crossed with Victor Moses’ attitude towards the Super Eagles, as “he seems to be picking the invitations he will honour”.

Moses, 25, is out of the games against Mali and Luxembourg, as he is said to have cited ‘fitness concerns’ as the reason for his withdrawal, but the NFF are unhappy with him.

“The leadership of the NFF is not happy with Victor Moses as he seems to be handpicking the invitations he will honour,” the source informed.

“This is not the first time he’s withdrawing from games citing fitness concerns even when we’re not sure if he’s injured and we are considering taking corrective measures.”

The former Wigan Athletic forward is one of six players to have been ruled out of the games and while the NFF appears to have excused the other players for various reasons, no particular reason was given for Moses’ withdrawal as was evident in a statement issued by the NFF communications department on Tuesday evening.
