Nigerians flocked to Hayin Banki, Kaduna State, on Tuesday afternoon, June 27, to see and cheer on Super Eagles winger Moses Simon in a novelty match, Newspremises reports.
Moses Simon retired to Nigeria to spend the holidays with his family, friends, and coworkers after assisting the Super Eagles in obtaining an early ticket to the African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast in 2019.
The 27-year-old, who is renowned for supporting his community through nonprofits, is taking advantage of his recent release from the hard European football season to spend time with his followers.
