Nigerian Defender William Ekong who forms a paternership with Balogun to form the oyibo bus for Nigeria had come out for former super eagles coach and legend, Sunday Oliseh, for not believing in him and calling him too soft.
In an Interview with ACL sports Ekong had said:
“I wanted to play for Nigeria and as soon as Stephen Keshi called me in 2015 and asked if I was interested, yeah, it was a dream come true to play for Nigeria against Chad that time.
“The Olympics was like a restart for my international career. I was part of the Super Eagles until Sunday Oliseh took me out because he said Oyibo boys are too soft.
“I hope he (Oliseh) is watching his TV now and see us going to the World Cup.” No ill feelings with him, I saw him at the Olympics last year and we spoke briefly, though he didn’t believe in me then, but I think Nigerians can see now what I can do.”
