Folarin Balogun is called up by the USMNT for the Nations League!
AS Monaco's American striker has been called up by Team USA to play in the two-legged quarterfinals of the Nations League against Trinidad and Tobago during the international break.

He is (already) one of the key players for his country. He arrived this summer in the Principality and has made eight appearances in Ligue 1 with AS Monaco since (3 goals, 1 assist), Folarin Balogun will again be playing with the USMNT this international window. The Rouge et Blanc striker will join the USMNT as the play in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Nations League.

Balo’, Mister 50%!

Intended to replace friendly matches, like the Nations League in Europe, this competition is played among the national teams of North and Central America. This November, Balo’ and his teammates will therefore compete in the two-legged quarterfinals, against the team from Trinidad and Tobago. It’s an additional opportunity for the Monegasque sriker to shine, having already made 6 appearances… in which he’s had three goals and one assist!

The first stage of this double-legged tie will take place on November 17 in the United States in Austin, before the return leg four days later on Tuesday 21 in Trinidad and Tobago. Daghe Balo! 🇺🇸
