@VictorMoses will join the team in London. #SoarSuperEagles,”read a tweet on the team’s official Twitter handle on Thursday.
A source within the Eagles camp however informed Sportinglife.ng that Moses may have been asked to stay back in London and continue to rest after taking part in last Saturday’s FA Cup Final.
“I am sure the coach must have reckoned that it would be pointless having him in Nigeria when he won’t be part of the Congo DR friendly,” said the source.
The Eagles will be lodged at the Wembley Hilton Hotel for the June 2nd friendly which will be the second friendly between the two countries.
Based on this, Moses will have two training sessions with the team ahead of the friendly.
