Moffi to lead Super Eagles attack against Algeria

Lorient striker Terem Moffi is likely to lead the Super Eagles attack alongside either Cyriel Dessers or Emmanuel Dennis against Algeria next week.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form since the beginning of the 2022/2023 season.

Moffi has so far scored 6 French Ligue 1 goals in 8 outings this season and is right behind Paris Saint German's duo of Neymar Jr (8) and Kylian Mbappe (7) on the French League top scorer's chart.

The four-capped Super Eagles striker has been tasked to capitalise on the absence of the injured Victor Osimhen and Sadiq Umar to lead the Eagles attack against the North African giants.

“Moffi has to do what he has to do to make it into the starting team,” Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Finidi George told PUNCH Sports Extra.

Moffi is currently the best in-form striker at the Super Eagles camp as Cyriel Dessers and Emmanuel Dennis are yet to register a goal for their respective club teams this season.

Moffi was on target when Lorient won 3-1 away at Auxerre the last weekend.
