    Superb player Balogun. Nigerians world over love n appreciate you. Reminds me of late baba Keshi n Chairman Christian Chukwu, same style, sweeping from defence to attack. We all know your not being in Brighton match day squads is not for football reason, for we know what Brighton is all about while you are what God has made u to be, man dem.

      My bro, God be with you. I completely agreed with you. You said it all.

  • Balo, the injury proned defence man, has shown himself to be Eagles expereinced and reliable defender in over a year and half, helping the SE secured qualification for Russia 2018, with a decent appearance, and more recently AFCON 2019 in Egypt. Aderemi Leon Balogun might not have a good run of games for club due to happenstances of injuries yet his performance for Nigeria has been heroic and awesome; he is gentle, calculative and reliable.

    The SE would be counting on his experience for a successful outing at the AFCON, barring any injuries or loss of form.
