Leon Balogun has replied critics that He is not a robot following the errors he made during the 2:0 loss to Madagascar in the last group match in the ongoing African Cup of Nations.
Leon Balogun committed a “school boy error” that saw Nigeria trailing 1-0 inside the opening 13 minutes of the group B fixture against AFCON debutants, Madagascar on Sunday.
That error, disorganized Super Eagles and boosted the confidence of the debutant to go all the way for the 3 points the Eagles couldn’t get their rhythm has the Barea put another one past Ezenwa to run away with a very comfortable 2-0 victory and top as group B winners. He said “Bad days happen we had a bad day we tried it wasn’t enough but we still qualified and that’s what we should focus on and get ready for the next game,” he told brila.net.
“I didn’t make that mistake on purpose it definitely doesn’t feel good. It was just a bad game for the whole team. It is football and these things happen and we’re all human beings; I’m not a robot.
“I can’t guarantee that mistakes won’t happen, so I will never say that. But of course if you had a mistake like that then you don’t want to do it again, but you can’t make any promises on that one.”
“I made one mistake that led to a goal; played one miscued pass to the goalkeeper apart from that I think I defended everything I needed to defend and I know people will only focus on that mistake but that’s not what I’m going to do
