Victor Moses’ goal earns Fenerbahce maximum three points in Turkey


Former Super Eagles winger Victor Moses scored the winning goal in Fenerbahce’s 3 – 2 comeback win over 10- man Rizerspor in an intense Turkish Super Lig match on Saturday at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on Saturday.

The Nigerian international who played all 90 minutes of the encounter calmed his nerve to score an 84th-minute penalty in the game to hand the host the maximum three points in a keenly contested fixture.

The visitors took the lead as early as the 4th minute through Dario Melnjak while Sedar Aziz equalized for the home side in the 22nd minute. Fenerbahce ensured they went into the break with the lead courtesy of Roberto Soldado in the 40th minute before Dario Melnjak scored his second in the 55th minute.

The match took a wrong turn for the visitors after Mykola Morozyuk was sent off in the 42nd minute due to a second yellow card offense which ensured the visitors finished the game with 10 men.

Reacting to the goal, the Chelsea on loan winger praised the team’s character and the massive support they received from the fans during the course of the game. “Massive win today absolutely buzzing. Great character again from the lads and thanks to our fans who were incredible throughout the whole 90 minutes!”

Moses has scored twice for the Turkish giants in eight appearances in all competitions since joining the team in the January transfer window.
