Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, the revered former Super Eagles captain, lauds Victor Moses’ Chelsea for their well-deserved victory in the 2017/18 Emirates FA Cup final, prevailing over Manchester United, as reported by Completesportsnigeria.com. Moses, marking his third appearance in this season’s competition, played a pivotal role, contributing to the Blues’ narrow 1-0 win over United in a fiercely contested encounter.
