Moses: It was not Super Eagles day, to win



Victor Moses has revealed that it was not Super Eagles day to win their fifth World Cup encounter against Argentina at the Saint Petersburg stadium on Tuesday.

Moses who was pained about the 2-1 loss to the Lionel Messi’s captained side told TheCable that a little bit of madness on the part of Nigeria cost the team the match.

“A little madness cost us and we lost it towards the end. It was Messi’s day,” Moses said.

“We really wanted to do the best but we are really disappointed. We did the best to win or draw the game but they kept attacking and attacking and they have the likes of Messi and Di Maria.”

The Chelsea wing-back also expressed doubt over the essence of Video Assistant Referee because he felt Nigeria were robbed by it.

“It was definitely a penalty, the referee should have given it. It was a similar situation we had in the game between Portugal and Iran and it was given.

“The referee went to see it and he should have awarded it. The replays showed it was a penalty.

“VAR? To be honest, we have to get it right because if we don’t get it right, there’s no point in using it.

“Everything do happen for a reason. We need to go home and think of the future. Argentina is a good team but they will find it hard against France because they are a good side.”

Moses talked about the possibility of Antonio Conte leaving Chelsea before the start of the next season.

“At Chelsea? I don’t really know. We will see what will happen,” he said.

“I don’t know the next manager. I don’t want to talk about that for now.”
