Balogun who was included in Super Eagles’ squad for the clash sustained an injury which has ruled him out.
The 28-year-old defender suffered a muscle strain in FSV Mainz's 3-2 home loss to Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Saturday, September 24.
The injury has ruled him out of FSV Mainz’s two next games and the World Cup qualifier against Zambia.
Balogun took to Twitter to express his disappointment over his injury but assured fans that he will back in action as soon as possible.
“Not delighted about my injury at all! It's part of the game though. Good thing about it, I'll be back real soon,” he wrote on Twitter.
This is the second time an injury will be ruling him out for a Super Eagles game this year.
