The Chelsea winger played a big part in the team as Sunday Mba scored the lone goal that made Nigeria emerge as African champion for the first time in 19 years.
Moses had recently changed allegiance to Nigeria from England and has now won a continental title with the Super Eagles.
“[It’s] one of [the] best days of my life. [T]his is a dream come true, I'm so proud to be Nigerian. The win is for each and every one of [you] back home,” Moses tweeted via his official account.
Nigeria will now play in the Confederations Cup in Brazil later in the year.
