Leon Balogun has picked the Super Eagles 3-1 win over Algeria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo as one of the highlights of his career.
The Rangers defender said he and fellow central defender William Ekong “bullied” Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani for Nigeria to win in front of their fans.
“I remember the road to the 2018 World Cup pretty well,” he narrated on Ekong YouTube Channel.
“We beat Cameroon 4-0, Algeria 3-1 with Mahrez and Slimani upfront.
“It was pretty special. Me and (him) Ekong bullied them actually.”
Both players are now also part of Nigeria’s quest to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
