FIFA Clears Aina To Represent Nigeria

Nigeria have received clearance from world’s football governing body (FIFA) for Chelsea defender, Ola Aina, to make his international debut in the world cup qualifier against Cameroon on Monday.

Coach, Gernot Rohr, said Aina who can either play right or left-back, could now line up in Yaoundé as the Super Eagles look for a second victory in four days over Cameroon.

Rohr had hoped to use Aina in the first clash against Cameroon but the FIFA clearance did not arrive in time.

Aina, who is on a season-long loan at English Championship side Hull City, was scouted by the Super Eagles to fill a gap in the full-back positions.
