Folarin Balogun is called up by the USA for the big match against Germany
L’attaquant monégasque, auteur de deux buts et d'une passe décisive cette saison, figure dans la sélection de Team USA, pour affronter la Mannschaft puis le Ghana, quatre jours plus tard.

He is becoming one of the important players for his country! Regularly a starter since winning his first cap in June 2023, it is therefore no surprise that Folarin Balogun haas been called up again with the United States. Called up by coach Gregg Berhalter, he will be there to play two friendly matches during this October international break.

A big match against Germany

After scoring last month against Oman and being named Man of the Match, the Monégasque attacker, who joined the club this summer, will then try to repeat such a performance against more upscale opponents, namely Germany, on October 14, and then Ghana, four days later.

These are two matches which therefore promise to be very interesting and balanced with the USA feeling confident after a CONCACAF Nations League win last June. It was a competition during which “Balo” played a major role since it was he who scored the second goal in the final played against Canada.

Already two goals for AS Monaco

And he could be again during these two friendlies, especially since the Rouge et Blanc number 29 is having a strong start to the season. In four matches played and only two starts, he has managed to find the net twice against Lorient and then Marseille, showing plenty of class. He also set up Maghnes Akliouche last weekend! Bravo and good luck Folarin! 🇺🇸

📅 The United States’ schedule:

Friendly match – Saturday October 14: United States – Germany at Rentschler Field, East Hartford (9 p.m.)
Friendly match – Wednesday October 18: United States – Ghana at Geodis Park, Nashville (2:30am)
