Victor Moses Opens Up On Controversial Penalty In Nigeria’s 1-0 Win Over Poland



Victor Moses has opened up on the controversial penalty awarded him during the international friendly against Poland on Friday, insisting he was fouled and deserved the spot kick.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria’s winner against Poland on Friday night, came as a result of Victor Moses converting a penalty kick in the 61st minute of the international friendly staged at the Municipal Stadium in Wrocław.

While speaking after the match, the Chelsea right wing-back insisted that referee, Michael Oliver made the right call even though television replays suggested that he took a tumble in the penalty area after minimal contact with VfB Stuttgart defender, Marcin Kaminski.

”For sure it was a penalty when I was fouled, the referee made the right decision. It was a good win for us,” Victor Moses said at the mixed zone.

”Poland has many good players. They attacked especially well after conceding the goal, but we showed more character today.

”We wanted to enjoy the game and simply win. We believe that during the World Cup we will manage to go as far as possible.”

Nigeria will travel to the English capital on Saturday ahead of their international friendly against Serbia at the Hive Stadium in London on March 27.
