Veteran defender Balogun eager for Super Eagles call-up



Nigerian defender Leon Balogun has moved to clear up any misunderstanding regarding his availability for the Super Eagles team ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

In a recent interview with OwnGoalNigeria, the 35-year-old player expressed his disappointment at being overlooked for selection, despite his impressive performances this season.

Balogun emphasized that he never indicated unwillingness to represent the national team, contrary to what may have been perceived.

With Troost-Ekong and Kenneth Omeruo sidelined due to injuries, Balogun’s exclusion came as a surprise to many.

“I want to make it clear that I never said I wasn’t willing to be part of the Super Eagles team,” Balogun stated. “I’ve had a good season and I’m eager to continue representing Nigeria. However, I can only do so if I receive an official invitation.”

Balogun’s commitment to the national team remains unwavering, and he assured fans that if given the opportunity, he will always honor it with dedication and hard work. His desire to don the Super Eagles jersey and contribute to the team’s success remains strong.

This clarification aims to put to rest any speculation surrounding Balogun’s availability and willingness to represent Nigeria. As the Super Eagles prepare for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers, fans will be hoping for a swift resolution and the opportunity to see Balogun back in action for the national team.
