Germany-based defender Leon Balogun has added to Nigeria’s growing injury worries after a muscle injury kept him out of his club’s game on Saturday and he has now been ruled out of the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt.
Turkey-based defender Kenneth Omeruo has already been ruled out of the Egypt matches after he suffered a groin injury that will sideline him for two weeks.
Mainz 05 announced that Balogun is nursing a muscle injury and so did not travel with the rest of the squad for a 1-1 draw at Werder Bremen on Saturday. He is not likely to be fit in time for Friday’s first leg qualifier against Egypt in Kaduna.
