    I pray Balogun will even make the world cup. I will not be surprised if he doesnt because the frequency of his injuries are now beginning to get annoying. He can hardly play 3 games in a row for Nigeria without getting injured. I pray he will make it to Russia sha because we really really need him in that team.
