Super Eagles pair Leon Balogun and John Ogu may have played their last matches for the Nigerian national team after claiming bronze at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
According to a Brila FM report, Gernot Rohr is eager to bring in young players before the start of AFCON 2018 qualifiers.
This may see the Franco-German tactician not looking at the direction of the ageing-duo of Ogu and Balogun after their limited appearances at AFCON 2019.
At the last count, Balogun lost his position in the heart of super Eagles defence to Kenneth Omeruo and could only start two of Nigeria’s seven matches in Egypt, while Ogu featured in one game.
“There is the possibility of Ogu and Balogun might not get invited to the team again. Both of them are not getting younger, and besides, are not indispensable in the team.
“This coach is eager to bring in young but quality players into the team, especially the midfield and these two may be dropped from the team going forward,” a reliable source was quoted as saying to Brila FM.
