Nigeria and Chelsea winger Victor Moses says he wants to do more big things for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The wing-back has reiterated that he was delighted to be named Nigeria Football Federation Player of the Year.


He said the Nigerians are happy with his performance whenever he's playing for the national team and that has encouraged him to do more.

Nigerian Federation 2nd Vice President Shehu Dikko travelled to London to present Moses with the Player of the Year gong last week.

''I am simply over the moon with this award. It means that the country and the people really appreciate the little we are doing for the National Team,'' Victor Moses told

''I am looking forward to doing much more for Nigeria at the FIFA World Cup finals in Russia,” said Moses, who was named winner at the Awards ceremony on 19th February.''

Moses was Nigeria's top scorer in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers with three goals which he scored in home matches against Algeria and Cameroon.

The former England U17 star was nominated for the award along with Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi and Lobi Stars striker Anthony Okpotu.
