Leon Balogun: There would have been outrage if Nigeria hadn’t qualify for Afcon

The Super Eagles will return to the biennial showpiece in Egypt later this month after missing the last two editions

Brighton and Hove Albion defender Leon Balogun said that there would have been an outrage if Nigeria had failed to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

The west Africans qualified for the tournament in Egypt as their group winners ahead of South Africa, Libya and Seychelles with 13 points from six matches.

Prior to that, Nigeria missed the last two editions of the Afcon and have not appeared on the continental stage since their triumph in 2013.
