Victor Moses struck a penalty to hand the Super Eagles the victory against the Red and White of Poland at the Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw. Moses won the penalty in the 61st minute after a jinking run into the box where he was adjudged to have been brought down by Marcin Kaminski. The victory continues the impressive run the Super Eagles have had under Coach Gernot Rohr. Here are things we learned from the friendly fixture.
Moses needs an upturn in form
For a player so evidently important to the Super Eagles, Victor Moses was too often on the fringes of the game; just lolling along as the game passed him by. It took till the second half for Moses to rev his engines at the freezing Municipal stadium in Wroclaw. Moses got the ball, sped past two defenders before he was brought down in the box after another dribble attempt. He won the penalty and he scored from the spot with aplomb. It was good to see a player with confidence issues, stemming from his poor form with his club get on the score sheet but his burning moment afterwards was still too short. He was far from the talisman the Super Eagles needed to delivering awe-inspiring moments last year. Rohr certainly will be worried for Moses, needing him to drive the attack as well as consistently impact games.
