Nigeria v Zambia update: Ola Aina ready to make Nigeria debut

Hull City Full Back, Ola Aina has described it as an honour to play for Nigeria as he looks set to have some minutes on Saturday against Zambia.

Aina recently switched allegiance from England to Nigeria and told the media on Thursday in Uyo that it will be a big honour to represent Nigeria.

It is a big honour for me and I am very happy to wear it (green white green) and to be here with my team mates and coaching staff.

In the event of me making my debut, I feel like I am ready,” Aina said.

Aina started as a Chelsea FC under 11 player and represented the club at under 18, under 19, and under 21 levels making his first team debut on July 19, 2014 when he replaced Todd Kane against AFC Wimbledon.

At youth international level, he has played for England’s under -16, under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-20 teams but insists that the contrast in playing style will not be a problem.

I have been watching the Nigerian team for a long time. It is very different from what I am used to.

But regarding the physicality, I think I am ready to do my best for the team,” Aina said.

In May 2017, Aina pledged his international future to Nigeria. He was invited for the double header games against Cameroon but his clearance from FIFA did not arrive on time.
