Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has praised Ola Aina after the Torino defender produced a sterling performance in the Super Eagles 1-0 win against the Swallows of Burundi at the Alexandria Stadium on Saturday.


Aina started the match after regular Jamiu Collins was ruled out throught injury and the 22 year-old former England youth international was on the form of his life in the Super Eagles’ AFCON group B opener. Aina, who recently sealed a permanent transfer from Chelsea, set up Odion Ighalo for  the only goal of the tight encounter with a outragous back heel in the 77th minute.
Rohr said after the win: “Ola Aina has improved really well. That’s why we tell our players to go to teams where they will play and get better. He is a different player entirely, his presence gives us another option when we play with three at the back as he can play as a wing-back.”
