Leon Balogun Could Be Ruled Out Of Super Eagles October Friendlies

Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun could miss the international friendlies scheduled for Nigeria next month.

The 32-year-old pulled up in the warm-up before kick-off and was forced to sit out, with Filip Helander replacing him in beside Connor Goldson.

Balogun had been nursing an injury and was ready to return before the latest setback.

Their luck went from bad to worse when, after around 13 minutes of the Ibrox match, Ryan Kent hobbled off injured to be replaced by Glen Kamara.

And Steven Gerrard will have been tearing his hair out when Brandon Barker was also forced off a short time later, where Alfredo Morelos replaced him.

And Morelos was then victim of a horror challenge from Ryan Edwards. He was stretchered off.

The news of the former Wigan defender’s injury would not be a good one for manager Gernot Rohr who has already lost Joe Aribo to injury as well.
