Brighton and Hove Albion defender Leon Balogun has emerged as an early doubt for Nigeria’s World Cup opener against Croatia.
The 29-year-old was signed by the south coast side on a free transfer having spent the last three seasons at Bundesliga outfit FSV Mainz 05. "I am delighted to welcome Leon to the club," manager Chris Hughton said. "He will add more depth to our defensive options. He is in the peak years of his career and I am sure he will integrate well into the squad. He also has valuable experience, having played in the Bundesliga, the Europa League and at international level." Balogun is a tough tackling centre-back who reads the game well and is comfortable in possession, although his distribution lacks quality on occasions. On Thursday, sources confirmed Balogun missed Nigeria’s last session in Essentuki, due to injury, and he was sent for a scan to determine the severity of the problem. If he fails to recover, then coach Gernot Rohr may opt for Kenneth Omeruo as a like-for-like replacement. Jun 15 - 6:32 AM
