Nigeria, Stoke City forward Victor Moses ruled out until 2015

Victor Moses was one of many Stoke players who enjoyed a solid performance against West Ham.
Moses scored his first goal of the season for Stoke in the 2-2 draw with West Ham on Nov. 1.

"He has a significant thigh injury which is likely to keep him out for several weeks," assistant manager Mark Bowen added.

However, a group led by Chris Giwa took the matter to court -- despite statutes forbidding football issues to be deliberated in a civil court -- as he alleges...
