Moses superexcited after FA Cup triumph with Chelsea

Super Eagles and Chelsea star, Victor Moses was short of words after his club clinched the 2017-18 FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

The 27-year old, who was on play throughout the game at Wembley, did put up an impressive performance as he helped keep the opponents off target.

After failing to win the title last season, the Super Eagles winger joined the league of Nigerian FA Cup winners, as a first-half penalty from Eden Hazard helped the Blues end their season on a high.

“💙FA CUP WINNERS BABY!!! 🏆💙,” Moses tweeted alongside photos of him lifting the FA Cup trophy.

For Chelsea, the victory on Saturday handed them their eighth silverware in the competition – their first since 2012.

Moses has now become one of the seven Nigeria international – past and present – to have won the prestigious English football title.

Other players in the category include Alex Iwobi (2017), Daniel Amokachi (1995), Nwankwo Kanu (2002, 200, 2008) Celestine Babayaro (2000), Mikel Obi (2007, 2009, 2010, 2012) and John Utaka (2008).

Moses will be hoping to make a great impact with the Super Eagles at the World Cup finals in Russia next month.
