England still a possibility for Moses

VICTOR Moses would find it ‘very difficult’ to turn down an England call-up if it presented itself, according to his agent.

The Wigan winger, who was born in Nigeria but moved to England when he was 11, represented the Three Lions at junior level all the way through to the Under-21s.

However, he appeared to turn his back on any hope of turning out for the senior England team when he switched his allegiance back to his homeland earlier this year.

Moses was expected to make his debut for the Super Eagles against Botswana over the weekend, but didn’t make the trip – which didn’t go down too well with the Nigerian Football Federation.

The chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Chris Green, described the player’s actions as ‘outrageous’, and hinted both Moses and Latics would be reported to FIFA.

And now Tony Finnigan, Moses’ agent, has added more intrigue by hinting Moses could still be swayed to join Fabio Capello’s men ahead of next summer’s European Championships.

“Let’s be honest, if he got called up for the full England squad, could you see him turning it down? I couldn’t,” Finnigan told the Evening Post.

“It’s Vic’s choice at the end of the day and, while Nigeria are only playing friendlies, he’s still able to commit to England.

“He can only do that if he’s called up, though, and I’m not sure how many times Fabio Capello’s been to Wigan recently.”
