Chelsea loanee Victor Moses scored for Spartak Moscow, as he got his first goal in the Russian Premier League.

The 29-year-old Chelsea winger moved to Russia on loan, and has started his time there on a good note.

Spartak Moscow recorded a 3-1 victory over Krasnodar on Saturday, and Moses dedicated the goal in support of Nigerians who are kicking against police brutality.

Moses showed his support to campaigners calling for an end to police brutality in the African nation, having scored his team’s second goal.

“Brilliant win today and delighted to get my first goal for the club,” Moses tweeted.

“I dedicate my goal today to the people of Nigeria. Enough is enough! Nigerians have the right to protest and not be killed for it. Pray for Nigeria.”

A number of football icons have joined in the protest, including Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger and Blues hero John Mikel Obi.

This is Moses sixth loan spell away from Chelsea, having joined Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham United, Fenerbahce and Inter Milan on loan since signing for Chelsea in 2012.
