Moses Excited Over Nigerian Sports Award

Nigeria and Liverpool forward Victor Moses is delighted to have got the Nigerian Footballer of the Year award.
The Nigerian Sports Awards were held on Tuesday with Moses walking away with the prestigious award after being up against John Mikel Obi and Sunday Mba.
Mikel, however won the Sports Man of the Year award while Blessing Okagbare won the Sports Woman of the Year award.
On hearing of the honour, kickoff.com reports that, Moses took to twitter and said: “Proud and honoured to win the Nigerian Footballer of the year award for 2013.
“Is a dream come true to play for my country so thank you every1”.
The 22-year-old represented England at Under-16, 17, 19 and 21 levels, before choosing to play for Nigeria at senior level.
Moses was instrumental to Nigeria’s football success in the outgoing year, and he is sure to perform better for Nigeria during the 2014 FIFA World Cup slated for Brazil.
Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, who was voted Coach of the year, showered encomiums on Moses and Mikel after hearing of their awards.
For Moses, Keshi has this to say; “he is a talented youngster and has been giving his total commitment when he comes to play for Nigeria, but I believe that he has only given us 80 per cent, we hope he will give 100 per cent at the World Cup. He is still young but he can do better for the Super Eagles.
“For Mikel, I am happy that gradually the world is recognising his talents which he has been showing anytime he plays in the national team. I salute him and I am proud of his achievement, but must also say it’s just the beginning of greater things to come for all the players in the national team.”
