The forward says the team has resolved to do better

Super Eagles and Chelsea FC forward, Victor Moses, says coach Stephen Keshi’s anger at the performance of some of the foreign pros in Nigeria’s game against Liberia at the weekend was justified.

The match, a first leg encounter in the final-round qualifiers of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, ended 2-2. Unhappy at the way some of his top players played, Keshi went on a tirade questioning their commitment.

His anger immediately split fans into two groups — some argued that it was uncalled for while others believed the coach was right.

Moses, who created the two chances that led to goals from Real Betis’s Nosa Igiebor and Ikechukwu Uche (penalty), is the latest to voice support for the coach, saying the team must do better in the future.

“I told the coach not to judge me by that game and I am willing to make up for it by giving my best in subsequent games,? he said.

?It was tough and rough over there and I am happy that we even managed to get a draw from that game.

“We spoke to ourselves after the game, and the conclusion was that we must fight for our country to win matches henceforth. The coach did not spare us either and we all felt bad because we did not only disappoint him, but also Nigerians generally.”
