Only Algeria could have stopped Nigeria from AFCON title – Balogun


Nigeria center half Leon Balogun believes the Eagles lost the AFCON title to the best team in the tournament, but has also hailed the courage of his teammates after Wednesday’s third place play-off win.

Balogun said he was happy the Nigerian team would return home with a medal, although it wasn’t the preferred metal.


“We have to be fair as well, we lost to Algeria, I think they are one of the tournament favorites as well as Senegal both of the teams deserve to be in the finals, but all in all we are happy to have finished in third place.”
