It was a brilliant goal from the talented player who have been outstanding for Rangers this season. Balogun was later replaced in the game after sustaining an Injury.
Rangers controlled the game with good ball possession from the moment Balogun scored the goal till the moment the Video Assistant Referee made the worst review in this season EUROPA league cup.
Rangers scored their second goal of the game through Kemar Kobe in the 30th minutes of the game. It was a beautiful goal from the highly rated star but the Video Assistant Referee's decision to have a review of the goal is what many fans have reacted negatively at.
