Nigeria’s midfielder Victor Moses has announced a stunning  decision to quit international football, choosing his club Chelsea over answering duty calls from Nigeria.

Moses, who is just 27, announced his decision on Wednesday on his Instagram page.

He said he made this decision  to focus on his club career and family.

Moses was part of the Nigerian squad to the 2018 World Cup in Russia and paid pivotal role in Nigeria’s victory over Iceland at the Group stage.

He was born in Kaduna on  12 December 1990 and was taken to England at a younger age.  He represented England at youth tournaments, playing for the Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21, but he thereafter opted to play for Nigeria.

He  began professional his career in the Championship with Crystal Palace, before his performances caught the eye of Wigan Athletic, where he made his Premier League debut in 2010.

After two years, his game had improved to the extent that European champions Chelsea were interested, and he signed for them in the summer of 2012.

Despite ten goals in all competitions during his first season, he spent his second season on loan to Liverpool, his third on loan at Stoke City and his fourth on loan at West Ham United.

He has been capped more than  20 times for Nigeria since his debut in 2012 and was part of the winning squad at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, as well as the campaign in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Here is the full message that he posted on Twitter and his Instagram account:
