French-based winger Moses Simon has reported to the Super Eagles camp in Abuja, Nigeria ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The former KAA Gent star reported on Sunday, as confirmed by the team’s media team.

Simon’s call-up is not a surprise because he has been in great form this season with Nantes’.

With 18 appearances in the French Ligue 1, the 26-year-old has scored two goals and provided six assists this season.

The ex Levante man received his first call-up to the Nigeria national team by coach Daniel Amokachi in March 2015 and made his debut on the 25th of the same month in an international friendly against Uganda, when he replaced Anthony Ujah after 59 minutes in the game.

He is expected to help the team end their trophy drought by winning this year’s tournament in Cameroon.
