Not a World Cup player. He might have been great against African Teams but the reason he plays in division 2 is now obvious

You obviously don't know what you are taking about.
Balogun is a Bundesliga player and has been one of our best defenders so far - has saved us several times.
His first touch also looks too heavy for me but he is a good defender with great positioning.
One of our better players.
Nevertheless, overall we lack quality.
The Argentines are at least one class above us individually.
Only a few of our players have the class to perform on the highest level.

Might be.
Nevertheless the best defenders available for the country are on the pitch at the moment.
We just have to admit that we just don't have enough class.
It's not a question of player selection but lacking class overall.
But let's wait and see if our players can raise by the challenges they face in the 2nd half.
Sometimes class comes with experience on the highest level.

I knew he wasn't all that but he was getting a pass and each time somebody mention his flaws, his groupies will call you all kind of names as if you have blaspheme.

No, he isn't. He's been injured a bit.

Well the search for a CB continues, cause one certainty is we will badly struggle in defense at the world cup proper without depth.

The oyinbo wall can't pass to save their lives because they are a wall. What we been missing in SE is a CD pairing that's not fancy, but consistently blocks most things thrown at it. Technical crew just needs to work on them releasing the ball quick to players who can hold on to it. We also need better teamwork to counteract the high press.

You've got to be kidding me.
How quickly you forget the role he played in getting us to the World Cup! Unreal!

He's had a bad couple of games, so??!!

If there's one (no two) thing Gernot Rohr must do, he must make sure Balogun isnt tasked with facing pace and make sure he isnt asked to be a ball playing CBi.e. protect his weaknesses. The kid can absolutely play. He and Ekong have a great partnership and when the cover in front of them is working, they are central to what this unit has become.

Good thing you guys are not anywhere near the decision making process for the Super Eagles. This is craziness.

Bro, forget that "passing out of the back." Truth is that Argentina pressed us Bielsa/Sampaoli style and we weren't prepared for that level of intensity! Simple as that! Now we have tested it, if we meet them again, we can plan better for it.

Dumb thread.

Balogun is a world cup player. Our best defender. Just need to get more games at this club to keep in shape.

He’s by far our best defender. Looked off pace last couple of games but Class is permanent.
Make una no come start this nonsense.

You raise a great point! Few sides press like that, the guy clearly wasn't ready for it and may never have to deal with it again for another year or two.
