Former Golden Eaglets coach Henry Nwosu has lamented the omission of Leon Balogun from the Super Eagles list to prosecute the friendly game against Cameroon.

Gernot Rohr released a list of 31 players to prosecute the game against Cameroon in Austria next month, and the Rangers defender was a notable omission.

Nwosu told Soccernet.ng that Balogun has been consistent this season and has formed a great partnership with William Troost-Ekong.

That is why he believed his absence is shocking and should be a part of the squad.

“I am still confused on why Gernot Rohr omitted Leon Balogun from the list of players that will confront Cameroon in an international friendly game next month.

“Balogun’s partnership with Troost-Ekong has been great for the team, and recently he helped Rangers win the Scottish Premier League. He has been consistent this season, and I see no reason why he should be omitted.”

The Super Eagles are in Group C of the qualifiers with Cape Verde, Liberia, and the Central African Republic, while Cameroon are in Group D alongside the Ivory Coast, Mozambique, and Malawi.
