Despite the loss, Mainz maintained their Bundesliga status after finishing in the 15th position on 37 points.

Jonas Hector and Yuya Osako were the scorers for Cologne in the 43rd and 87th minutes respectively.

Balogun, who started from the match, had to go off for Alexander Hack in the 18th minute in what is a suspected injury.

He is now a doubt for the Super Eagles friendly games against Corsica and Togo in a few days’ time.
