Super Eagles of Nigeria will be without the services of Chelsea wing back Victor Moses in their upcoming friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso in London.

Moses only recently returned to training from a calf strain injury picked up in the 1-0 FA Cup win over Manchester United, but was played from the start by coach Antonio Conte in their 2-1 comeback win over West Ham in the Premier League.

The half fit Victor Moses was however replaced in the 70th minute by Cesc Fabregas after reportedly complaining of pains in his ankle during the course of the game.

Moses will now be expected to spend at least one week on the sidelines, which effectively rules him out of the Super Eagles games on the 23rd and 27th of March.
