Balogun - We can go far in this competition

After confirming our place in the knockout stages of the PL International Cup on Friday night, Folarin Balogun believes we can go far in the competition. 

Our striker scored a stunner during the match, while goals from Robbie Burton and James Olayinka secured a 3-0 victory against Leicester City. 

We spoke to Balogun after the full-time whistle, and this is what he said:

on the win…

It was a good victory, the boys worked hard. We played Leicester earlier on in the season and it was a tough game, so it was nice to get a win and a clean sheet today.

on his goal…

It’s always nice to help the team. I just thought as the ball was on the edge of the box and bouncing, I’ve been practising on my weak foot, so I thought ‘why not?’. Luckily for me it’s gone into the top corner.

on keeping a clean sheet…

It’s really good to get a clean sheet. Steve’s been telling us to keep clean sheets, and we know that keeping a clean sheet sends a big message to other teams so we were happy to keep it today.

on our chances in the PL International Cup…

I think we have a strong chance of going far. We’re all about sending statements out, so I think winning all three games shows that we’re a strong side and I think if we carry on putting in performances like we done today we can go far in this tournament.
