Inspired by Victor Moses, Reading midfielder Hope Akpan looks to be part of the Nigerian Super Eagles squad.


In an interview with BBC’s Okwuche, Reading midfielder Hope Akpan reveals his intention to follow in in the footsteps of Victor Moses and play for Nigeria at international level. 

Born in Liverpool, United Kingdom, to Nigerian parents, Akpan joined Reading from League One side Crawley Town in the January transfer window. Although he is  eligible to play for England, the 21-year-old midfielder has set his sights on becoming a Super Eagle.

When asked if his decision was based on the Eagles recent success, Akpan replied that their performance has in many ways inspired him and after seeing Victor Moses represent Nigeria, he is even more inspired and hopes to be part of the Super Eagles squad.
