Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has expressed delight after his London family watched him for the first time play for Nigeria during the friendly against Senegal which ended 1-1 at The Hive, home ground of Barnet Football Club.

The Mainz 05 defender was in action for 90minutes as a late Kelechi Iheanacho goal cancelled out Moussa Sow’s goal.

‘Proud moment to play in front of my London family for the first time wearing the green-white-green. Thanks for the amazing support of the fans as well,’ Balogun tweeted after the game.

The result meant that the Super Eagles are yet unbeaten under German tactician Gernot Rohr and they will return to action on Monday night when they take on Burkina Faso at the same venue, in London.
