Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun will resume pre-season at Brighton & Hove on Tuesday, July 17, according to Manager Chris Hughton.
The 30-year-old defender was handed an extended break after representing the Super Eagles at the football festival in Russia.
Balogun went the distance in the three games played by the Super Eagles at the 2018 World Cup and the highlight of his performance was winning a penalty against Argentina, which was converted by Victor Moses.
Australia goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and Colombia’s Jose Izquierdo were part of Brighton & Hove’s World Cup contingent.
Hughton told the club’s official website on Monday: ”The three players who went to the tournament are back this week – Leon comes back on Tuesday, Maty is back on Wednesday.
Balogun penned a two-year deal with Brighton to become the first Summer signing after choosing not to extend his contract with Mainz.
