Victor Moses has announced his retirement from the international football at the age of 27.

The Nigerian born Chelsea winger, who represented his country 37 times and scored 12 goals made his debut in 2012.

“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…. However, I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on my club career and young family, as well as to allow the next generation the opportunity to step up and to flourish.” Victor Moses said.

Victor Moses was a member of the Nigerian squad that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013. He also represented the country at two World Cups in 2014 and 2018, in Russia this summer, where Nigeria were knocked out at the group stage after having beaten Iceland.

Victor Moses is one of the richest Nigerian footballers. At the age of just 27, one would arguably say that the retirement is indeed too early, as many believe he still has much to offer to his country. However, Victor Moses obviously wants to concentrate on his club assignment, where much of his income comes from.

For a player whose net worth is estimated at around $23 million ( $95,000 weekly salary), it is not so difficult to understand what may have prompted Victor Moses’ decision to retire at a ripe age of 27 to concentrate on his club.
