AFCON: Leon Balogun shifts attention to Libya clash after win against Seychelles

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has shifted his attention to the team’s next 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Libya at home following Saturday’s 3-0 win against Seychelles.

Stand-in captain, Ahmed Musa, Chidozie Awaziem and Odion Ighalo got the Super Eagles’ three goals in the game.

The win revived the three-time African champions’ hopes of securing a ticket to Cameroon 2019 following the 2-0 home defeat to South Africa in their first Group E game in Uyo.

The Super Eagles will next face Group E leaders, Libya at home on October 10 in another crucial encounter

“Job done ✅, on to the next one. #SEYNGA #AFCON2019 #SoarSuperEagles,” reads a tweet on his official Twitter handle.

Libya top the group with four points, same number of points with South Africa who were held to a 0-0 draw in Durban on Saturday. The Super Eagles are third with three points, while Seychelles sit at the bottom without a point.
