Victor Moses, a former Super Eagles winger, will likely need surgery after suffering an Achilles tendon injury during Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Ural for Spartak Moscow.
The 31-year-old will miss six months of action following surgery, according to Sparta Moscow.

On crutches, the former Chelsea player left the stadium.
Moses has scored two goals and recorded two assists in four league appearances for his club this season.
