Why did Victor Moses retire from international football at 28? When there’s nations cup next year? Nah, he shouldn’t have.
Victor Moses won’t even play much competitive football this season and he is retiring from international football. 😂

Victor Moses’ retirement may not be the last we hear. Others likely to follow. Surprised it took this long #Team9jaStrong

The Victor Moses announcement is really bad news for Nigeria. Head coach Gernot Rohr building something really promising ahead of next year’s AFCON. Good mix of youth & experience. Moses is one of the key senior players. He’ll only be 31 at the next World Cup.
Dabby Hernandez 👌🏼 @dabbynwa
Buhari!!!! Buhari!!!!! Buhari!!!!! How many times did i call you??? Why did you go to London to convince Victor Moses to retire??? Eh???? Why????
promise_innocent😪😫😪😫 Noooooo. I respect your decision but I can’t possibly accept this sad news. My friends call me Victor Moses cuz I’m your #1 fan here in Liberia. Only time I saw you in person was when we drew with Liberia 2-2 at the SKD stadium in Liberia. Please reconsider bros… Abeg. I still want to see you in our famous Green & White.
