First goal Romelu Lukaku scored was my mistake - Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun admits

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has faulted himself for being the reason why Lukaku scored against Brighton & Hove in their 3-2 victory over the Red Devils.

Manchester United striker, Lukaku stormed a free header in the 34th minute.

‘’The biggest thing was adapting to the style of play within the side, because I came back in quite late after the World Cup during the summer,’’ Balogun said to Brighton’s official website. 

‘’It’s different in competitive matches, in the first goal Romelu Lukaku was my man and I didn’t pick him up during the second phase of play – the ball got deflected and I didn’t anticipate – these are the challenges that I still have to get used to. 

‘’But the team made it quite easy and we talked a lot in defence and that  helped me settle in quite fast – it’s normal that it might take a while.’’ 

Brighton & Hove will battle Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday
