It’s Still Painful! Balogun reflects on World Cup exit

Super Eagles Defender Leon Balogun has broke his long since since Nigeria’s exit from the world cup with a emotional message to Nigerian football fans.

Balogun described the “painful” outcome of Nigeria’s world cup journey, yet expressed hope for a better future.

 

The Brighton and Hove Albion defender, who is expected to join up with his new EPL club after a world cup break period, posted the message on instagram with a group picture of the Super Eagles at the world cup.

 

Balogun’s Post read:

Better late than never, but never late is better. It’s been 2 weeks since this exciting journey has ended for my team and me. Reminiscing it’s still painful, I won’t lie. But life goes on and it gives you so many reasons to smile. Meanwhile I turned 30 (thx for all the messages ), am about to start a new chapter in Brighton and there will be a new world champion soon making their nation proud. I will be forever grateful for this invaluable experience with the Supereagles. So this is to say thank you to my team, the complete staff, to everyone who was part of this great journey and supported us. To Russia and its people for their great hospitality.
And last but not least, THANK YOU Nigeria for the endless support. It’s been a great honour representing you and we hope we could make you proud. We will continue to strive for greatness in the future so one day we can hopefully bring a trophy back home #WorldCup2018 #Dreamchasers #DreamsDoComeTrue #Supereagles #Flygerians # #Adeola
