Balogun’s Brace Vs Rennes Takes Ligue 1 Goals To 10

Folarin Balogun scored two goals to help Stade de Reims beat visiting Rennes 3-1 in Thursday’s Ligue 1 fixture, Completesports.com reports.

Balogun’s two goals against Rennes means he has taken his tally for the season to 10.

He is now in joint third spot alongside Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi and Alexandre Lacazette in the top scorers chart.

Balogun opened scoring for Reims in the 6th minute before grabbing his second and his side’s third with six minutes left.

The win took Reims to 10th position on 20 points after 16 games in the league standings.

Recall the 21-year-old is on a season long loan to Reims from Premier League leaders Arsenal.

  • I think technical adviser Eguavoen and coach Peseiro should extend a Super Eagles invite to this striking phenomenon – Folarin Balogun who is painting the French Ligue 1 with goals. He will be a good addition to Nigeria’s team or else Nigeria could lose him to England or the USA in the nearest future.

    • Even if Balogun is invited,he will be left on the bench or given a few minutes and tossed away…..Balogun will not be given a fair chance to integrate into the team……, It’s clear from pesiero’s body language and selection that he is following the footsteps of Rhor…..And that tells you that Rhor was never the problem but the greedy men who surrounded him who call themselves assistants……Those men are still very much around the team…….. when you have someone like salisu who has been caught collecting bribe in your team locker room then expect surprises in the team selection and progress…….Pesiero and Rhor will only select whoever those greedy satanic men advise them to select…….The circle continues.

    Pesiero must recall Balogun so that Super Eagles attacking will so stronger than any African team, SE have Osimhen, Moffi,Onuachu, Dessers,so I think SE attacking will make difference in any African match.

    nigeria will remain dormant in football in as much as there is no fairness in selection
