Moses had recently changed allegiance to Nigeria from England and admits that winning the Afcon on Sunday evening was a dream come true.

"one of best days of my life this is a dream come true I'm so proud to be Nigerian. The win is for each and everyone of u back home," he Tweeted.

Nigeria will now play in the Confederations Cup in Brazil later in the year.
