West Ham forward Victor Moses has pulled out of the Super Eagles team for the October friendlies because of an injury problem.

Moses had been recalled by Sunday Oliseh for the friendlies against Cameroon and Congo but according to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the forward is  pulling out of the matches scheduled to hold in Belgium on Thursday and Sunday as a precautionary move against injury.

Moses featured for West Ham in their last weekend 2-2 draw with Sunderland.

Despite these absences, Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, assured fans that the team has enough good quality options to fill the gaps left by both players.

"We have no choice now but to work with the other players who are available," Oliseh said.

"The fact that the other batch of players from home were not issued their visas last week is also setting us back because we would really want to take advantage of the time to put in a lot of work," the coach revealed.
