NFF To Punish Moses, Success For ‘Snubbing’ Zambia Match

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), is reportedly set to ban the Super Eagles duo of Victor Moses and Isaac Success, after they pulled out of Sunday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Ndola.

Officials of the federation feel that the two players did not make genuine claims about their injuries and have decided to investigate the matter.

If the claims are found to be false, the NFF will discipline them and may even choose not to invite them in future.

Both Moses and Success played for their Premier League clubs last weekend.

Moses started his first league game for Chelsea in three years, while Success came off the bench to score for Watford in their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

“We know the two players had good games and there was no sign of injury on the duo during or after the game,” an NFF source told

“It came as a surprise to hear later that Moses was injured and that he would not be available for the game and Success finished his team’s game before claiming injury.

“Honestly, they won’t go unpunished if our investigation turns out as we are suspecting. In fact, we are considering writing a protest to FIFA if we find out that they connived with their respective clubs to feign injuries and stay away from the matches.”

Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has already called up Godwin Obaje of Wikki Tourists and Chisom Egbuchulam of League Champions, Enugu Rangers, to take their places.‎
