While playing for the Super Eagles is an honour in itself; wearing the captain's armband comes with a deep sense of responsibility and fulfillment.

It is not then surprising as Leon Balogun is over the moon having been given the honour to wear the captain's armband in Friday's final 2018 World Cup Qualifying match against Algeria.

Balogun, who was forced to wear a protective mask in the game played in Constantine, said he was elated even as he dedicated the point earned against Algeria to Carl Ikeme.

It is expected that John Obi Mikel will return to collect the captain's armband as the Eagles face Argentina on Tuesday in a friendly match in Krasnodar, Russia.
