Super Eagles’ midfielder, Alex Iwobi has hailed former national teammate, Victor Moses who on Wednesday retired from international duties, describing him as an achiever who has paved the way for budding talents, reports

Following his retirement announcement, Iwobi believes Moses’ sudden exit will give room to young ones like him to continue where he stopped and take the Eagles to the next level.

“Thank you for paving the way for us. You have achieved so much for our country. It was a pleasure to play with you, wishing you the best big bro @VictorMoses,” Iwobi posted via his official twitter handle.

Moses called time on the Eagles after six fruitful years that saw him appear at two World Cup tournaments and a winner’s medal at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. He was seen in recent times as one of the backbones of the current team under the tutelage of Coach Gernot Rohr.

His influence in the Super Eagles was not in doubt as was seen at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

He featured 37 times for the Super Eagles, scoring 12 goals between 2012 and 2018.
