Player Profile
In spring 2008 Hannover 96 completed the signing of the talented defender from Türkiyemspor Berlin, after he had turned down offers from Hertha BSC and Werder Bremen.

2007/2008 was the German-Nigerian's first season in the senior team at Türkiyemspor Berlin and he quickly became one of the NOFV-Oberliga's best players. Before leaving Berlin, Balogun helped his side to promotion to the Regionalliga, where they will meet 96's reserves.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

I would cap this guy yesterday in the FE ... but I do not think Siasia will cap this guy, in fact I will bet on it. There are guys like him, Joel Obi and a few others who will not be called up ~ regardless if they score 100 goals ... it will not happen. The Nigerian coaches generally have their own selection and there is often little room for 'outside' players this is why we see Isaac Promises and 'Hollywood Shuffle' Isaac Okoronkwo ...

Does he have a Nigerian passport, and if he is interested, he should be given a chance to come fight for a shirt, there are no guaranteed caps.

Unlike u I do not hype players. I simply present the facts and let intelligent folks make up their minds one way or the other, as was the case with Angelo Ogbonna, a Serie A defender...

I dunno, but he is consistently listed as German-Nigerian, and on the german site, www.weltfussbal.de, they have a nigerian and german flag against his name.

First of all, I have always presented Ogbonna as a good prospect in a position where we are short on backups. The rest of ur assertion are simply figments of a rather poor imagination.

Now, if Ogbonna's team is a 'kwehkweh' team as u suggest, how come u are so big on Shittu who is a bench fixation at decadent Bolton...

Mystic,

We need to cap this dude, Danny Shittu was capped at a time he was playing in Div 3---- Blackpool. This guy is going to be very useful for SE in years to come, giving dude a shot in one of the friendly matches would not be a bad idea.

I am thrilled with his profile ----- 20yrs, height---1.90cm and finally real age, common name one present SE defender at that age playing in high profile league. Yobo, Rabiu (Standard Liege), Shittu (Blackpool), Nwaneri (Enyimba), Ordia (Tiraspol), Dele (Sparta) and Yussuf (enyimba) . Apam and Taiwo are exception.

TXJ,

Only those born after January 1 2009 are eligible for the Flying Eagles. Balogun will be 21 this year so that makes him ineligible for an U-20 tournament.
