Folarin Balogun, who was left out of England latest team by Gareth Southgate, has put a cryptic remark on his social media page over the snub.
The 21-year-old has excelled while playing for Reims in Ligue 1 on loan from Arsenal, where he has 16 goals in 26 league games.
Since 1961, Balogun is the youngest player in the history of the French Ligue 1 to grab at least 16 goals and one assist in his debut campaign.
He has also excelled for England’s Under-21 team, scoring seven goals in 13 games and giving himself a remote chance to receive his first senior call-up.
However, the forward was not included in Southgate’s team for their forthcoming Euro 2024 qualifying matches against Italy and Ukraine.
Out of pain, he posted a mysterious remark on Instagram after the confirmation about his rejection.
“In life go where you’re appreciated. Be easy.” – he wrote.
The forward was obviously upset about being pushed over since he believed he should have been included with players like Harry Kane, Ivan Toney, and Marcus Rashford.
The youngster was born in New York, making it possible for him to be eligible to feature for the American national team; therefore, England now runs the risk of losing him to America.
On the other hand, he was born to Nigerian parents, and who knows, he might decide to play for the African powerhouses as well.
Only two players—Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain and Joanthan David of Lille—have scored more goals in France’s top division this season than Balogun.
