Moses quit playing international football for Nigeria after the 2018 World Cup in Russia to spend more time with is family and concentrate on his club career.

However, Babayaro believes a return to the national team set-up, will increase interest in his services.

He told Owngoalnigeria that: “A return to the Super Eagles will no doubt do his career a whole lot of good right now. He is not getting games at Chelsea but he will sure get games with the Super Eagles and that could provoke interest from top clubs unlike now where only mid-table teams will consider him.

“Moses is a talented player no doubt and he still deserves a shot at a top team but that won’t happen if he isn’t playing at Chelsea, it could happen if he impresses at international level with Nigeria, so he should consider it.”
