Victor Moses is one of 17 debutants in Nigeria's African Nations Cup squad, and the Chelsea forward is hoping to make a splash.
The Super Eagles open their campaign on Monday against Burkina Faso, and Moses, who chose Nigeria over England, can hardly wait to get started.
“I am confident of a good outing in South Africa. We have prepared well and, having missed the last tournament, wish to make Nigerians proud by the end of it.
"This is my first Africa Cup of Nations and I want to make it a memorable one. I want to play in every match, score when the opportunity presents itself and help players in good positions to also score.
"When all these (things) happen, they (supporters) can be sure that we are going to bring back the trophy,” he said.
