Nigerian winger, Victor Moses has expressed his excitement over his sides’ victory at the Europa League on Tuesday night, as they won 1-0 against Zenit Petersburg.

The game was played two days early for security reasons to avoid Fenerbahce fans clashing with Istanbul rivals Galatasaray hosting Portugal’s Benfica on Thursday.

It was Moses’ first start with Fenerbahce since joining the Turkish side in a loan deal from Chelsea last month, and he was involved in the only goal of the game.

On-loan Leicester forward Slimani was the goalscorer, who struck in the 21st minute after being set up by Moses from a corner-kick

“Good win last night 💯💪🏿⚽️ . First leg ✅ . Time to focus now on Saturday 🔥,” Moses tweeted on Wednesday morning.

Following his arrival in Istanbul from Chelsea in January, Moses has featured thrice in the Turkish Super Lig as a second-half substitute and has a goal to his credit.

Fenerbahce will take on Konyaspor in a League encounter on Saturday by 5:p.m Nigeria time.

Meanwhile, the return leg of the Zenit tie takes place on February 21 – in Russia.
