Nigerian International, Leon Balogun, ensured his club, Brighton Hove & Albiom, ran out of Crystal Palace sight yesterday during their domestic league clash at the farmers stadium.
The Nigerian International scored just 25 seconds after coming on as a substitute for Pascal Gross to score the second quickest goal by a sub in the Premier League this season after Daniel Sturridge vs West Ham (24 secs).

Leon Balogun’s first touch landed inside the net to double Brighton’s lead against Palace. Lukaku’s first touch would end in Man United half, thus, leading to the opponent scoring.
