Ola Aina to Super Eagles: Make Nigeria proud in Russia

Super Eagles defender Ola Aina has offered his best wishes to the Super Eagles for a successful outing
at the 2018 FIFA World Cup which kicks off next week in Russia.

Aina and Mikel Agu were dropped by head coach Gernot Rohr in the final 23-man list to the biggest
soccer showpiece.

But despite his exclusion from the final squad, the Chelsea defender who was loaned to Championship
side Hull City last year is hopeful that the team will make Nigerian proud.

He is also confident to make the team next time.

“May be next time. I want to wish the boys all the very best out in Russia make our Nation proud
#soarsupereagles,” Aina twitted on his official twitter handle @Aina2Ola.

In May 2017, Aina, who had represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18, under-19 and England
under-20 levels, pledged his international future to Nigeria and obtained a Nigerian passport to make
the switch from England to Nigeria after discussions with Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president,
Amaju Pinnick.

He was named in Nigeria’s preliminary 30-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia before he was
finally dropped on June 4 from the final list.
