Moore heading to Euros
Kieffer Moore plans to fire Wales to the 2020 European Championship just nine months after a fractured skull left him fearing for his future.
Moore suffered the horror injury - similar to the one which ended the career of Hull and England midfielder Ryan Mason in 2018 - playing for former club Barnsley at Gillingham in February.
The 6ft 5ins striker was unconscious on the pitch for eight minutes after challenging for a header.
Moore was rushed to hospital and in the following days the 27-year-old was forced to contemplate retirement and a future career as a personal trainer.
"It was a horrendous injury," Moore recalled ahead of Wales' vital Euro 2020 qualifier in Azerbaijan tomorrow. "At the time I didn't remember much. But as the weeks went on I started remembering.
"The defender headed the side of my head, I fractured my temporal bone and had a really nasty concussion.
"I wasn't in a good way. My agent was there and he was ringing my mum and girlfriend - and they weren't best pleased.
"I had blood streaming out of my ears. It was quite graphic.
"I didn't have an operation, but I had a CT scan and multiple other scans and they determined the outcome."
Moore spent two months out before playing a few games at the end of the season and then joined Wigan in a reported £3million summer deal.
Torquay-born Moore made his international debut in a September friendly against Belarus and scored on his first competitive outing in Slovakia, a 1-1 draw in Euro 2020 qualifying.
