William Troost-Ekong has named Leon Balogun as his preferred Super Eagles defensive partner.

Troost-Ekong, 26, formed a perfect partnership with Balogun during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The duo were also head coach Gernot Rohr’s first-choice centre-back pairing prior to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Troost-Ekong has, however, partnered other players like Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem and Semi Ajayi lately after Balogun failed to secure game time at Brighton which also limited his chances with the West Africans.

“There have been many different partnerships I have played with. Again over the last five years, the games I have played, most of them with Leon,” Troost-Ekong told Super Eagles media team in an Instagram chat.

“He has been very good, I think we have good understanding. Leon has more experience, he came one year before I played my first game for the Super Eagles.

“He is like a big brother to me and it has been good playing with him, I have learnt a lot from him as well.

“It always makes it easier when you have the same kind of mentality because you can understand each other well and you make good decisions together.”
