Chelsea pair Victor Moses and Mikel John Obi were the stars for Nigeria in the nation’s World Cup qualifier against Algeria on Saturday as the duo netted the goals that secured a 3-1 win for the Super Eagles.
Moses opened the scoring for the home side at the Akwa Ibom Stadium after he latched onto the ball and made his way towards the box in the 25th minute.
He attempted to pass the ball but, after it instead rebounded off a defender, the winger regained possession and rounded his marker before driving in a low shot into the back of the net.
His Chelsea teammate Mikel then doubled Nigeria’s advantage three minutes before the break after receiving a through-ball and firing in from close range with the Algeria defence attempting, unsuccessfully, to appeal for offside.
