Balogun is enjoying a breakthrough season in the French top flight. Only Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé (19) and Lille OSC’s Jonathan David (19) have scored more than Balogun’s 16 goals in Ligue 1 so far this season.
The Arsenal loanee, who is also eligible to play for Nigeria, has played for the US Men’s National Team up to the U18 level but then went on to represent England at the youth level.
He reacted to the omission through his Instagram handle “In life, go where your [sic] appreciated.”
Given that being in contention for the Ligue 1 Golden Boot wasn’t enough to convince Southgate that he was worthy of selection, Balogun is seemingly questioning his international allegiance.
