Chelsea winger Victor Moses has brought an end to his time with the Super Eages, following their group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup.
The 27-year-old scored 12 goals in 38 appearances for the Super Eagles and he was part of the team that lifted the Africa Cup of Nations title in 2013.
"I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime. Nothing will ever compete to what it felt like to represent Nigeria on behalf of our country," Moses said in a post on social media.
"However I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish. We are blessed as a nation to have so many exciting young players coming through and now is their time.
"I have already spoken to the manager by telephone and would like to say thank you to him and his staff, the NFF and all of my teammates for all of their support over the years. Most importantly I would like to say thank you to the Nigerian people for believing in me and supporting me over the years. It’s meant the world to me and my family and I will always be a proud Nigerian supporting the team.
"Thank you for the memories and good luck to the team for the future.”
