Balogun doubtful for Corsica friendly

By  | 

The Super Eagles might be without the services of Leon Balogun for their forthcoming international friendlies against Corsica (May 26) and Togo (June 1) in France due to injury.

The right fullback had to replaced after 18 minutes in the Bundesliga clash between Cologne and Mainz at RheinEnergieSTADION on Saturday afternoon.

The initial prognosis is that Balogun sustained a thigh injury which might keep him on the sidelines for at least two weeks.

In the coming days, the Nigeria international will be subjected to tests to determine the severity of his injury and the time frame for his return to training.

William Troost-Ekong, Uche Agbo and Chidozie Awaziem are the remaining central defenders named in Nigeria’s roster for the friendlies with Corsica and Togo.
