Balogun: Super Eagles’ Early Exit From Russia 2018 Still Painful

By Adeboye Amosu:

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, is still haunted by the team’s early ouster from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

Gernot Rohr’s men failed to progress to the knockout round following a 2-1 defeat against Argentina in their last group game.

The West Africans opened their account in Russia with a 2-0 loss to Croatia but bounced back to record a 2-0 win against Iceland in their second game.

Balogun featured in all four games for the Super Eagles in Russia.

“Better late than never, but never late is better. It’s been 2 weeks since this exciting journey has ended for my team and me. Reminiscing it’s still painful, I won’t lie. But life goes on and it gives you so many reasons to smile,” he wrote on Instagram page.

“Meanwhile I turned 30 (thx for all the messages ????????), am about to start a new chapter in Brighton and there will be a new world champion soon making their nation proud.

“I  will be forever grateful for this invaluable experience with the Super Eagles. So this is to say thank you to my team, the complete staff, to everyone who was part of this great journey and supported us. To Russia and its people for their great hospitality.

” And last but not least, THANK YOU Nigeria for the endless support. It’s been a great honour representing you and we hope we could make you proud.
We will continue to strive for greatness in the future so one day we can hopefully bring a trophy back home ???????????????????? #.”
