Two Super Eagles stars Victor Moses and Leon Balogun have both been named in Confederation of African Football’s Dream Team for match day four of the African World Cup qualifiers.
In his third straight match in the World Cup qualifiers, Chelsea wing-back Moses inspired the Super Eagles to pick up a valuable point on the road at Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium, Yaoundé.
Leon Balogun was named to the starting XI thanks to his stellar performance against the Indomitable Lions, with the Nigerian team not conceding until the 75th minute when Vincent Aboubakar converted a penalty kick.
In a 3-4-3 formation which is usually favoured by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, Moses was deployed as a right wing-back, while Mainz star Leon Balogun started in the left side of central defense.
Moses came close to scoring when he hit the bar in the second half after superb work to pick a hole in the Cameroonian defense.
This is the second straight match that the two Nigeria stars have been recognized by CAF, as they were included in the Team of the Round for match day three along with Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.
