I will miss Nigeria-Zambia clash – Balogun

Published

on

Nigeria international, Leon Balogun has confirmed that he will be out of Super Eagles squad that will battle Zambia in next month’s 2018 World Cup qualifier in Ndola.

The 28-year old defender was substituted in the 9th minute of Mainz 05’s 3-2 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga after suffering a muscle strain, and Balogun says he is not happy he won’t be a part of that trip.

Balogun added that he is expected to make full recovery soon, and with the
help of his medial team, he will return to action soon enough.

“I’m going to miss another very important game on our road to Russia 2018. Which is kind of sad. But I can’t change it so there’s no time to hang my
head,” Balogun told Supersport

“I’m glad that it is “just” muscular so I’m certain to be back in action real soon. I have full medical support from my club with therapy twice a day to make sure I’m fit earliest possible”

The German-based player also said that he is doing well except for the injury that has ruled him out for some weeks, which includes his Europa League debut this week.

“I’m all good apart from that injury. It’s very unlucky…the timing as well as how it happened.

“My debut in the Euro League is put on hold again and the big game against
Wolfsburg”
