Martinez: England missed star Moses

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez believes Victor Moses should have been given an England call-up to avoid losing him to the Nigerian national team.

Moses, who scored the winner for his new club Chelsea in their Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk midweek, made his debut for Nigeria earlier this year. The winger played for England youth teams over 30 times and his former club boss insists the Three Lions have missed out on a rare talent.

"It is difficult to find players like him, not just in England, and I'm sure he could adapt to anything," Martinez is quotes as saying in The Sun newspaper.

"Even if you look at the great footballing cultures like Spain and Holland you see players of his type are very rare. Victor could have been a real weapon for any team in the world.

"Victor is a quite unique player. When you work with him you realise he is not a normal footballer, not a typical modern winger.

"He is an old-fashioned type of winger with incredible raw talent which allows him to go past people. He brings real penetration to the wide positions.

"Teams are so well set up tactically these days that you need players who can bring something different and they don't appear that often."

Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan last summer in a £9 million move, but was overlooked by former England boss Fabio Capello despite Martinez's pleas.
