Super Eagles Player Leon Balogun Says His Premiere League Goal Is Another Dream Come True

Super Eagles player, and Brighton and Hove Albion defender Leon Balogun has stated that scoring his first Premier League goal is another dream come true for him.


The 30-year-old joined the Seagulls in the summer from German Bundesliga side Mainz 05 before his 2018 World Cup showing with the Super Eagles.
he former Werder Bremen man made his fourth league app
earance for Chris Hughton’s men against Crystal Palace on Tuesday as a first-half substitute and, 25 seconds after, scored with his first touch to help his side claim a 3-1 victory.

"For me it's another dream in this football calendar year that I wanted to come true,” Balogun told club website.
“I made my dream come true of playing in a World Cup and I made a big dream come true in moving to the Premier League.

“Now scoring in the Premier League with my first touch in this game, it's kind of unreal. I'm just happy. When I saw the ball bouncing I knew it was going to be tough, so I just hit it and luckily I hit it right. It was a great feeling.

"We were one man down, but I think I'm experienced enough to be able to come on and help the team in that situation.

"Even though I might not be 100% satisfied, I think I still did well and my goal was probably the most important thing about my performance.

"I personally feel that I never really got into the game - viewers might think different but you always have a personal level that you want to reach, and I don't know that I really got it.”


  1. Nice one cause from our last nations cup qualifier match against SA,it was obvious that he dropped form so with this goal,i hope he feature in most of their games to build his confidence and form in preparation for our nation's cup tournament next year.
