Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun has hailed the team’s fighting spirit at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Balogun made his AFCON debut in the last Group B game against Madagascar, where his error gifted the Barea the opening goal in a shock 2-0 defeat.
There are other individual and team errors during the tournament, but the Brighton and Albion player told SportingLife that the team spirit helped them win the bronze medal.
t is very difficult but you have to face the challenges, people will have ups and downs individually and a team also we have ups and downs.
“But I don’t think we have a problem in the team and we have a fantastic team spirit. I think the moment like this is good because we have been fighting for each other for six weeks and we are very happy.
“We won third place medal because we lost to one of the best team in the tournament in the semifinal and they are playing one of the best teams in the final I think it is been fair.
“I think we have got a great team, great potential, and great ambition. We will just keep building that and keep the squad together. Hopefully, we will be more successful in the next one,” Balogun said.
