The Balogunner

Folarin Balogun has had an instant impact for Reims this season. The 21 year old has scored 10 goals including a sublime volley v Rennes (check out the video!) and is only three goals behind Ligue 1 leader Kylian Mbappe. His present may be gaining plenty of experience and playing time in France, but his future is one to watch. Currently on loan from EPL leading Arsenal, the striker has a youthful attacking side to come back to which seems is set for at least a few years of local dominance. However, his international claims also interest me very much. The England U21 man does have the opportunity to change allegiances and represent two other nations: Nigeria, where he could create a scary strike force with Victor Osimhen or USA, where he would be exactly what this USMNT needs as a pure center forward who can score goals any which way. Do you think he will stick with England? Or switch to Nigeria or USA?? Check out Balogun’s RC cards in 21-22 Score Premier League and notably in 21-22 Prizm EPL!
