Balogun, Aina out of Uganda tie

The duo of Super Eagles defenders, Leon Balogun and Ola Aina have been ruled out of the team international friendly game against Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Tuesday.

Balogun was part of the team that drew 1-1 with South Africa in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday in Johannesburg, in a match that saw Nigeria qualify for the bi-annual tournament.

He picked up a slight knock that will rule him out of the friendly match against the Cranes in Asaba.

Also, Torino defender, Ola Aina won’t be in the line up after he was replaced by Samuel Kalu before Nigeria square up against South Africa. He copped the injury a few hours before the game.
