Simon: I didn’t want to miss AFCON

UD Levante winger Moses Simon has told SCORENigeria he did not want to miss out on the Super Eagles final AFCON squad after he did not make the cut to last year’s World Cup no thanks to injury.
Simon has made the final 23-man squad to Egypt 2019.
He said, “I did not want to miss the Nations Cup after injury stopped me from the World Cup.
“So, I had to fight, work hard.
But it will still be left for the coach to pick his team.”

Simon is one of 20 players who will be making their debuts at the AFCON proper.
Only skipper Mikel Obi, Ahmed Musa and Kenneth Omeruo will not be playing their first AFCON in Egypt.
