On-loan Chelsea star Victor Moses as admitted that he may not be walking straight into the starting line-up of the Nigeria national team but he has assured that he will be fighting hard to regain his relevance with the Super Eagles.
Speaking with the BBC, Moses refuted insinuations that he was disinterested with the Nigeria team but instead that his absence has been more of injuries than lack of commitment has been speculated in some quarters.
“There is a new manager and the team has been doing well but without me,” Moses, who last played for Nigeria at the Brazil World Cup began.
“I’m prepared to give it my all and fight for a place on a regular basis, that’s my aim.
“This is football, a competitive stage and I have to fight hard to get in but I don’t mind doing that.”
Moses said he remains proud to wear the Green and White jersey of Nigeria and he will continue contribute his quota.
“I’m proud of being a Nigerian international and am always committed to playing for my country,” Moses told BBC Sport.
“It’s the best feeling representing your country and I always want to perform and give 100% for the team.
“Unfortunately, I have not been able to play due to injuries but I have an unwavering commitment to Nigeria.”
It is yet to be seen if Moses will be back for the crucial double-header ahead of Nigeria next month against Egypt in the AFCON qualifying series.
