Recovery Rate Excites Balogun

Fledgling Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, is excited about his recovery rate after he got injured in the international friendly between Nigeria and Mexico earlier this month in Atlanta, United States.
Speaking to Ben Alaiya, the Eagles Media Officer from his base in Germany, Balogun declared that the rate of his recovery has been wonderful, expressing delight that he will be part of the Super Eagles pre-World Cup party in the United States in May if he is invited.
“Its been quite exciting for me and I have been in touch with the federation and Coach Stephen Keshi, they have been very nice too. I can’t wait to rejoin the squad when we reconvene for the World Cup”, Balogun was quoted as saying.
Balogun also revealed that he will soon know the date that he can start kicking the ball on Friday 28 March.
“By Friday I should be able to know when I can start my comeback with initial ball practice and minor rehabilitation exercises.
“Again, I want to thank the NFF for their huge support, the coach has also been calling me from time to time and it could not have been better than this”, he said.
“If I’m lucky to be recalled I will be totally dedicated to helping Nigeria do well at the World Cup”.
