Victor Moses Inter Milan

Former Super Eagles, forward Victor Moses proved to be the difference for Italian side Inter Milan after he came off the bench to inspire them to a 2-1 comeback win over Parma, whilst William Troost-Ekong produced an individual fine display in the colours of Udinese, AOIFootball.com reports.

At the Ennio Tardini in Parma, Victor Moses was named among the substitutes for title-chasers Inter Milan as they sought to close the gap on runaway leaders Juventus at the top of the table.

Their work was however made difficult after just 15 minutes into the clash when former Ivorian winger Gervinho put the hosts ahead before Diego Godin thought he had equalized five minutes later only to see his effort ruled out by the VAR.

The visitors then turned to the bench with the trio of Moses, Young and Sanchez being introduced on the 69th minute as they went all out for an equalizer.

The moved then paid off with just six minutes left on the clock when Stefan de Vrij made it 1-1 before the ever-lively Moses delivered an inch-perfect cross to Alessandro Bastoni three minutes from time to seal a comeback 2-1 win.

Moses, who then picked up a yellow card in the closing minutes for time-wasting, finished with a rating of 7.0 as his Inter side now moves within just four points off second place Lazio.

Meanwhile, at the Dacia Arena in Udinese, Eagles skipper William Troost-Ekong returned to the starting XI for Udinese as they played host to high flyers Atlanta.

Duvan Zapata wasted no time in giving the visitors the lead on the 8th minute before Kevin Lasagna equalized after the half-hour mark to ensure both teams went into the break level.

Ekong was then replaced on the 66th minute by Rodrigo Becao with the host capitulating defensively as they conceded twice in 8 minutes via the boots of Luis Muriel and a Lasagama late strike proving not enough to help them to victory.

The Nigerian finished with a rating of 7.1, making 3 clearances, winning key tackles, and also winning 100% of both his ground and aerial duels.
