Aww!! Leon Balogun Reveals Why He Cried After Super Eagles Qualified For 2018 World Cup (Read)

Mainz 05 defender, Leon Balogun, has revealed the reason he was in tears, after Nigeria qualified for the 2018 World Cup, following a 1-0 win over Zambia earlier this month.

Balogun had to be consoled by Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel and other players around him, before joining them in their post-match celebrations.

In an interview with Debola Adebanjo, the 29-year-old who missed out on a spot to the World Cup with Nigeria in 2014 due to a broken foot in his debut game, replied: “Better late than never that’s why I cried after the game.

“It was like, as a matter of fact I can even put it in words. I have spoken to my family, to my club and loved ones, they are like do you know what this means, I am like yes I know, but I’m not realising it.

“I think it will still take me couple of days, weeks, maybe months or maybe I won’t even realise once I get to the plane to Russia, but this right now so sure after the game seems unreal to me. Wow it’s just wow.

“I missed the one of 2014 because of a broken foot and then it happens now which is a childhood dreams, it’s just unbelievable.”
