Nigeria: Victor Moses Becomes a Father

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses, Thursday announced the birth of his baby Brentley on social media, twitter.

The Nigeria winger announced the arrival of his bundle of joy on his Twitter handle, saying Brentley weighed 3.5 kilogrammes.

It has been an amazing year already for the former Crystal Palace star – He made his Nigeria debut in February in Rwanda after he changed his nationality and this summer he moved from modest Wigan Athletic to European champions Chelsea.

Only on Wednesday night he opened his goals’ account for ‘The Blues’ with a goal in a 6-0 win.

The pacy winger scored Chelsea’s sixth goal in a 6-0 bashing of Wolves. He was on target in 71st minute to celebrate his first start for ‘The Blues’.

Incidentally, Moses played for former club Wigan in a five-goal thriller against Wolves on the final day of last season.

“I remember the game, we won 3-2 at the DW Stadium,” he recalled.

“We went into a 3-0 lead but then Wolves came back and scored twice, but luckily we managed to hold on for an important win.”

Moses is grateful for the chances he was afforded as a young player, and he insists it’s a trophy which should be taken seriously.

“When I was at Crystal Palace and Wigan I played in most of the League Cup games, it’s a good experience for younger players to play in competitive matches,” Moses explained.

“It’s a big opportunity as a young player to show the manager that you’re good enough to hold down a regular place in the side.

“It’s an important trophy to win. Winning trophies can help give you the mentality to push on and do well in other competitions such as the Premier League and Champions League, so we just need to keep on winning games.
