Balogun Keens On Super Eagles Return



Balogun Keens On Super Eagles Return

Leon Balogun is keen on a return to international football with Nigeria.

The 35-year-old missed the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with injury with the Super Eagles exiting the competition in the last-16.

Balogun has barely featured for the West Africans in the qualifiers for the 2023 AFCON due to injury.

The experienced centre-back was released by Sky Bet Championship club, Queens Park Rangers in June.

Balogun, however, made a surprise return to Scottish Premiership giants, Rangers last month.

Having enjoyed regular football since his arrival at the Ibrox Stadium, Balogun has expressed his desire to play for the Super Eagles again.

“That’s perfect, I’m hoping to make the next squad. I have been out for quite some time and definitely, it would be something nice,”he told Rangers TV.

“Obviously, I’m looking forward to being called up. As much as it can be chaotic, I missed international football with Nigeria, and a lot of faces I haven’t seen for a long time.”
