Leon Balogun injured


Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun is injured, and was unavailable for selection when Mainz 05 tackled Augsburg at the WWK Arena on Sunday in a Bundesliga tie.

Medical tests carried out by Mainz medics revealed that Balogun had suffered a rib injury and it remains unclear how long the defender will spend in the treatment room.

It would be recalled that he was withdrawn from the starting lineup in the Super Eagles pre-World Cup friendly against Serbia on March 27, as a precaution due to illness.

With this, the injury list of Super Eagles players increased to four. On it are, Tyronne Ebuehi, Joel Obi and Eddy Onazi, who only returned to training few days ago after suffering a hamstring-related injury vs. Kayserispor on April 7.
