It's always an honour to play for my country - Victor Moses, as he speaks on yesterday's Algeria defeat

Victor Moses has reiterated his commitments to the Super Eagles after he scored a brace in Nigeria's 3-1 win over Algeria in Saturday 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo. Moses missed the team's 2-1 win away to Zambia in Ndola due to a hamstring injury last month but returned to the Eagles starting line-up on his return and didn't disappoint.

Victor Moses opened the scoring in the 25th minute with a right-footed finish after some a poor defending from the Algeria's Hicham Belkaroui and sealed the win for the Super Eagles in stoppage time after Schalke 04's midfielder Nabil Bentaleb had pulled one back in the 67th minute.

The 25 year old who was a thorn in the flesh of the Algerian defence throughout the match also praised his teammates for their heroic performance during the game. He said “Fantastic win (today) on Saturday and great team performance, always an honour to play for my country! Buzzing to score two goals too! #Nigeria” 
The win sees Nigeria maintain top spot in Group B with six points, four ahead of second placed Indomitable Lions on two points.
