    Who is the tallest of the Super Eagles? Mikel, Troost-Ekong or Balogun? It’s confusing, but I think Ekong is..

      I think its Balogun. Considering he bends or bows slightly when he walks and still looks as tall as the other two. If he stands straight up he will edge them slightly.

    • Balogun and Ekong are the same height (6’3), while Mikel is 6’2. John Ogu is taller than all three of them (6’3 1/2).
