The Super Eagles take on Mexico in a friendly in Houston, Texas, on Thursday. They then travel to Kenya on June 5 and a week later they are in Namibia for World Cup qualifiers before they jet out to Brazil for the FIFA Confederations Cup.

Moses has pulled out of all these games and his club have announced he will only be fit again by July 6 after undergoing treatment.

The player said on his Tweeter handle Wednesday @VictorMoses: “Devastated not to be able to represent my country this summer bt have to respect medical advice on injury. I’ll be supporting though #nigeria.”

Moses represented England at various age-group levels, but made his Eagles debut against Rwanda in a Nations Cup qualifier two years ago and went on to shine as Nigeria won a third Nations Cup in South Africa earlier this year.

Injury-hit Spartak Moscow striker Emmanuel Emenike and Kalu Uche from Turkish club Kasimpasa have also pulled out of the Nigeria squad ahead of a hectic summer schedule.
