Leon Balogun – “My first EPL goal is a dream come true”
Super Eagles star, Leon Balogun has reveled in his first EPL goal, saying it is another dream come true for him.
“For me it’s another dream in this football calendar year that I wanted to come true,” Balogun told club website.
“I made my dream come true of playing in a World Cup and I made a big dream come true in moving to the Premier League.
“Now scoring in the Premier League with my first touch in this game, it’s kind of unreal. I’m just happy. When I saw the ball bouncing I knew it was going to be tough, so I just hit it and luckily I hit it right. It was a great feeling.
“We were one man down, but I think I’m experienced enough to be able to come on. And help the team in that situation.
“Even though I might not be 100% satisfied, I think I still did well. And my goal was probably the most important thing about my performance.
“I personally feel that I never really got into the game – viewers might think different but you always have a personal level that you want to reach, and I don’t know that I really got it.”
