Victor Moses Cleared To Play In FinalBen Alaiya, spokesman of the Super Eagles, has disclosed that Victor Moses will certainly play the African Cup of Nations final against Burkina Faso on Sunday night.

Moses suffered a knock in the semi-final clash with Mali. Since then, there has been speculation in the media about his availability for the final.

''I can say 100% that Moses will play the final. He was sharp and quick in training yesterday (Saturday),'' Alaiya was quoted as saying by MTNFootball.com.

With Emmanuel Emenike in a race against the clock to be fit after he pulled his hamstring on Wednesday, Alaiya says there are capable replacements in the squad if the Spartak Moscow ace fails a late fitness test.

''He may not start, but he could still come in. He shouldn’t be ruled out completely, but in case he does not make it, we have capable replacements.

''Ikechukwu Uche was our leading scorer in the qualifiers and he could have a chance to prove himself as he has been mostly on the bench.

''We also have Ahmed Musa, who has also not been starting, and Brown Ideye,'' concludes Alaiya.
