Ekong: 'Balogun Remains My Preferred Super Eagles Defensive Partner'

William Troost-Ekong has revealed that Leon Balogun would remain his preferred Super Eagles defensive partner despite not enjoying game time with the senior team.
Balogun has since lost his position with the senior after failing to secure playing time with premiership side. Brighton which forced the club to ship him out loan to championship side, Wigan this season.

Troost-Ekong told Super Eagles media team in an Instagram chat:

There have been many different partnerships I have played with. Again over the last five years, the games I have played, most of them with Leon

He has been very good, I think we have good understanding. Leon has more experience, he came one year before I played my first game for the Super Eagles.

He is like a big brother to me and it has been good playing with him, I have learned a lot from him as well.

It always makes it easier when you have the same kind of mentality because you can understand each other well and you make good decisions together.

Both Ekong and Balogun formed a perfect partnership during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
