Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has said the players will feel a hundred times worse than fans, if they miss out on qualifying for the World Cup.

 

 

Nigeria have only failed to make it to one of the last seven World Cup since making a debut at the 1994 edition in the USA.

 

It was when Angola qualified ahead of the three-time African champions for Germany 2006.

 

However, the Eagles have made it to South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.

 

 

Nigeria appear on course for Qatar 2022 with three wins in four matches.

 

“If it is important for you as a fan who is not on the pitch but who is dreaming of seeing us play there, what do you think it means for us who are involved on the pitch.

 

 

“You get the chance to play, and it gets stolen away from you. So you can imagine your pain [as a fan] is the pain we feel, but our pain is your pain times a hundred probably.

 

“You are probably still going to get opportunities to go to the World Cup, but we are going to be sidelined and watch it on TV, and that’s what hurts. So we understand [what it means],” Balogun told ESPN.

      Leon Balogun reveals what it will feel like for Nigeria to miss out on World Cup

      OCT 13, 2021

      Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has said the players will feel a hundred times worse than fans, if they miss out on qualifying for the World Cup.

      Nigeria have only failed to make it to one of the last seven World Cup since making a debut at the 1994 edition in the USA.

      It was when Angola qualified ahead of the three-time African champions for Germany 2006.

      However, the Eagles have made it to South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.

      Nigeria appear on course for Qatar 2022 with three wins in four matches.

      “If it is important for you as a fan who is not on the pitch but who is dreaming of seeing us play there, what do you think it means for us who are involved on the pitch.

      “You get the chance to play, and it gets stolen away from you. So you can imagine your pain [as a fan] is the pain we feel, but our pain is your pain times a hundred probably.

      “You are probably still going to get opportunities to go to the World Cup, but we are going to be sidelined and watch it on TV, and that’s what hurts. So we understand [what it means],” Balogun told ESPN.

    EPL: I snubbed Man Utd for Chelsea to help three Nigerian players – Mikel Obi

    ByClimaxtrend
    OCT 14, 2021

    Former Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has admitted he had to sign for Chelsea in 2006, because the futures of three other Nigerian players were tied to the deal.

    Mikel spent 11 trophy-laden years at Stamford Bridge after signing from Norwegian club, Lyn Oslo.

    However, the transfer was enmeshed in controversy, as he had initially signed for Manchester United.

    Mikel Obi then claimed he was forced to put pen to paper for the Red Devils.

    This led to a legal battle between Lyn Oslo, Man Utd and Chelsea, while FIFA also intervened.

    At the end, Mikel Obi eventually signed for Chelsea, who paid a compensation fee of £12m to Manchester United and £4m to Lyn.

    During that period, three of Mikel Obi’s teammates at U-20 level, Chinedu Obasi, Emmanuel Sarki and Ezekiel Bala, were also undergoing trials at Stamford Bridge.

    Mikel Obi told The Athletic: “When I chose Chelsea, it wasn’t just my life that changed.

    “There were four lives that changed. Why? Because if I didn’t, Chelsea might not have anything to do with my three friends. I was close to them. I knew their families.

    “I didn’t just make the decision for myself. I thought about them, I thought about their families. This gave them more of a chance.”
