Leon Balogun Given Permission To Miss Super Eagle’s Friendly Vs Uganda On Tuesday

Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun will miss Nigeria’s friendly match against Uganda in Asaba on Tuesday after he was allowed to return to Europe, officials have said.

The Brighton and Hove Albion central defender will be the only one from the 23-man squad for the vital 2019 AFCON in South Africa who will not be available tomorrow in Asaba.

Like the Super Eagles, Uganda have now booked their place for next year’s AFCON in Cameroon after they pipped visiting Cape Verde 1-0 at home on Saturday.

The Nigerian delegation arrived in Asaba yesterday afternoon on a chartered flight ahead of the friendly tomorrow.
