Super Eagles new boy Terem Moffi revealed his message from Super Eagles head coach after scoring his first-ever hat-trick for FC Lorient.

Moffi scored thrice in FC Lorient’s 4-1 emphatic win over Samuel Kalu’s Girondins Bordeaux at the King Baudouin Stadium on April 26th.

The 22-year-old who is currently in the Super Eagles camp in Austria revealed he got a congratulatory message from the Franco-German coach after the game.

He said the message came as a huge surprise to him and he had to take his time before he replied to it.

“It was an honour for the national team coach to contact me because it's not everybody who gets a message from the coach,” he said.

“I was really excited, it was really good, to be honest, It took me about 45 minutes to respond to the message.”

“I thanked him for the message, saying it’s an honour and that I hope to play for my nation,” he told the NFF media team.

Moffi made his Super Eagles debut in the 1-0 defeat to Cameroon Friday night in Austria.

He came on as a second-half substitute for KRC Genk forward Paul Onuachu.
