Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has hailed Rangers of Scotland new signing, Leon Balogun, saying his bright start to the season could just earn him a recall to the Super Eagles, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Franco-German tactician, who disclosed this to Germany-based Oma Akatugba, further hailed Crotone striker Simy Nwankwo whilst also hinting on a possible return for the Serie B golden boot winner.
“Its a good move for Leon because even against St. Miren he played well and Aribo scored. He’s finding his rhythm again and is showing quality and I think he can come back to the Super Eagles with his form and we have Leon Balogun in good fitness.
”He had some problems in his last club but now I think he’s made a good choice playing together with Aribo and that’s a good change for him. It’ll be good to see him again,” Rohr stated.
Continuing, Right said: “Concerning Simy, we can have him and he’s doing so well. We monitored him like the others and what he did was great. He was a little bit down in the World Cup and didn’t have time to come in and be competitive with his partners but now I think he deserves a chance if he continues playing like this.”
Both players were part of Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 World Cup in Russia but while Balogun remained with the team to clinch Bronze at the AFCON in Egypt a year later, Simy lost his place and hasn’t been called up since then.
